Book Description

1 Feb 2000 Shire Album (Book 349)
This book tells how mines evolved from simple bell pits into extensive networks of shafts and tunnels and extending deep underground. It describes the methods used to drive tunnels through the rock and the machines that were developed to cut the coal. It explains how the coal was transported from the coalface to the shaft, a task performed variously by women or children with sleds of baskets, pit ponies, rope haulage systems, conveyors and locomotives, and it describes the winding engines used to lower men and equipment into the mine and to bring them and the coal back to the surface.

4.0 out of 5 stars Technical 5 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This talks about the technicality of mining and mining techniques through time rather than life as a miner in history, so it is a technical history rather than social history. It is illustrated with photographs and very clear to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent booklet 18 July 2013
By Mags2
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is an OK booklet rather a good book. Informative enough but not comprehensive or overly well written. Bit disappointing really was expecting more but still an OK read.
