Our heroes – from 500 years ago – Leonardo da Vinci – to the 20th century – Albert
Einstein – and all the great artists and engineers and scientists throughout
"I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do."
LEONARDO DA VINCI
"All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions."
LEONARDO DA VINCI
The only source of knowledge is experience"
"I have no special talents I am only passionately curious"
The origins and methodology of tcl-cumbria are based on innovative thinking, forging ahead with new
ideas, using creativity when it comes to finding novel solutions to complex problems – it’s in the DNA
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them"
It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with the problems longer”
The beginning of another journey 50 years ago from Leicester, through space, imagination, time
Not so much a giant leap, just incremental steps of achievement and recognition
A mechanical rig designed and manufactured to demonstrate principles of hydraulic power and control for a national
exhibition was spotted by a BBC reporter. Watching visitors operate levers to release single walnuts from a hopper,
then position on a crushing station before sweeping into a collecting tray, he spotted the opportunity to have it featured
on BLUE PETER as ’The World’s Biggest Nutcracker’ in 1968
Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Gathering experience through the application of mechanical engineering capability, fluid power & control
expertise across many national and international locations – from Moscow to Manchester – for world-class
companies in multiple sectors: Environmental, Food, Industrial, Marine, Nuclear, Sport & Leisure
Fast forward to the New Millennium and a visitor attraction collaboration project - work on a unique kinetic clock with
designer John Parkinson of Upfront Gallery and the build and installation of ‘behind-the-scenes’ power and control
systems to operate mechanical cogs and levers (mechatronics) that brought animated features to life every hour.
‘The Rum Story Clock’, Whitehaven has kept time on the hour, every day and every year for the past 20 years.
In those travels there have been contributions towards many aspects of life, including –
ART & CULTURE
from supporting local theatre to promoting art & design in schools
signing an £11million cheque to create a legacy for future generations
from a blueprint for conservation to helping create a £1/4million community facility
You have a great sense of creativity and a very unusual way of thinking. You are constantly looking for a good
way to realize every single idea that comes to your mind. You can easily find your source of inspiration and that
helps you to create really big things. The greatest pleasure for you is to share your best ideas with the world.
IN THE 21
st CENTURY THE NEXT MILLENNIUM BECKONS
“Out yonder there was this huge world, which exists independently of us human beings and which
stands before us like a great, eternal riddle, at least partially accessible to our inspection and
thinking. The contemplation of this world beckoned like a liberation…” ALBERT EINSTEIN
