Hi all, I have just moved and my annex is attached to Crenver count house. I have done all the usual searches, and have come up with very little info on Crenver mine itself, and not much more on Crenver and Abraham. I have dines, checked NLS etc,but am hoping someone can point me in the direction of further reading?
The lodes are similar to Binner downs, and i have nosed around there, but more specific info on these would be good too.
Even better would be someone local to show me around a bit?
Not looking for access info or suchlike, but the shaft in the field across the road looks inviting!
Any help appreciated, Cheers TonyBig Grin

Apologies I don't have a scanner. These pages from Joseph Collins Observations of the West of England Mining Region
