Robert Waterhouse's book The Tavistock Canal, Its History and Archaeology, will be launched at the Tavistock Museum on Saturday 11th November, from 11 till 4. While the central part of the book is about the canal it should be pointed out that this was a canal company that operated a number of mines, particularly those started by lode discoveries in the Morwelldown Tunnel. Robert has made a thorough job in this study, and the book also includes the canal boats, mine histories, plateways and railways and the chronologies of various sites, such as Morwellham. The book is 558 pages, A4 format, and many, many illustrations. Prices are £50 hardback and £30 softback. IP: 86.133.100.113

It's a cracking book. Got two copies. The softback is heavy but the hardback is seriously weighty. Full of great images and details. A serious essential addition for any mining enthusiasts library. Smile IP: 213.205.194.102
