Doug Scott

22 April 2021

A stalwart of the Guildford Society

Doug Scott died recently after a short illness. Doug was a valued member of the Guildford Society Executive, and Design and Heritage work group for many years until recently.

Doug was also well known as a speaker at Heritage Open days where he provided lively lectures.  He was a talented photographer and supported many Society events with photographs of Guildford and its surroundings.

Until he retired Doug had a distinguished carrer as a manager and engineer in the Oil Industry; this included time spent working abroad.  After he retired from BP he set up a Oil Industry Consultancy and Training company which he ran until recently.

Our thoughts are with his wife Gay and family at this difficult time..
