NEWS: June 2016: I'm very pleased to announce the release of a new collaborative book by Dr. Jim Rieuwerts and myself covering the history of mining in Castleton, Derbyshire.
Titled The Castleton Mines - A Descriptive and Visual History (ISBN: 978-0-9563473-6-7), the limited edition book details the various mines and mining enterprises in the Castleton Liberty from the 16th to late 19th Centuries, with research culled from Barmaster's records and numerous archive sources. The book is richly illustrated with my underground photographs of all the major mine sites in the area, and has just been very positively reviewed in Descent magazine, no. 250.
