Bruce Keth - Surveyor & Environmentalist, Peterborough (originally Dores)
Bruce's interest in bridges stems from his childhood, spending his formative years in the Inverness area, where his father was the Bridge Engineer with Inverness County Council.
Bruce started his professional career working on several Perthshire and Aberdeenshire estates and in Edinburgh with the Department of Agriculture. He moved to England in 1996 as Chief Surveyor with English Nature, but kept his Scottish connections, retiring five years ago as Head of Property at SSE.
His passion for Scottish history, geography and landscape is a recurring theme, captured in his book "Bridgescapes". In addition to completing his book, Bruce has spent his retirement as an ambassador for the sustainable use of water resources globally and, as President of his professional institution (The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)), has travelled extensively from New Zealand to Finland, via Africa. This has left little time for golf which, he says, is evidenced by his handicap!
