This archive contains a small selection from the papers of Kevin Hyett (1958-2004), a good friend of mine and Lorraine. He was a radical activist for the rights of disabled people.

In 2020 I published a pamphlet with my research notes on the campaigning by disabled members of ADAPT and others in the 1980s for full access to the new Metrolink tram system, a campaign that took four years and eventually prevailed.

The pamphlet is here – 2020-02-12 Metrolink Access Campaign 1984-1988 (FINAL)
