I'm trying to track down copies of the Newsletters from SCMC for my exploration research.

Dating back to the 70's I'm not having much luck (I have 2 pages from a couple of NL's from '77) so hopefully someone out there may have (some) dusty copies?

Any help much appreciated, feel free to PM me.

Cheers, Neil

Are you sure it's the "South Cardiganshire Mining Club"?

There's a reference here of the North Cardiganshire Mining Club!

Have you tried the British Caving Library? Although the collection isn't comprehensive, they do try to keep copies of all UK club publications, either email them or post on UK Caving and either Jenny or Mary will respond. Otherwise, WMS may have copies or one of their members might; I've checked the catalogue for the PDMHS library and we don't have any SCMC publications.

Under heading "Author's Preface" you find the following -
Thanks are also extended to the South Cardiganshire Mining Club... etc

So you now know that the group existed... Not looked through the British Mining No.17 thoroughly... Just looked to find a reference from the link given

Regards Tin Miner

Thanks for the comments so far...

I have come across references to both North and South CMC before (I have a couple of pages from SCMC Newsletters).

I will try the BC Library. I'm in the WMS but we don't hold a Society Library.

Cheers...

Just to complicate things, SCMC also stands for Shropshire Caving and Mining Club. IP: 81.153.8.252
