On the 4th February 2021, Les Riley will be talking about the Iron Mines of North Lincolnshire, 1850 onwards.

The talk will cover the lay of the orefield, early surface working, later surface working, then the move underground as overburden increased, finishing with present day remains.

A few diagrams and a large number of photographs, both historic and modern.

Les has been interested in mining history since his teens and has been a member of PDMHS since 1970.He is a Chartered Mining Engineer by profession and until retirement in 2019, he managed Tata Steel’s legacy mines in North Lincs for 23 years.

Currently looking at Peter Burgess for March.

A question for you all. Do you want these talks to be a regular post-lockdown feature?

I am aware that some folks will be saving talks for NAMHO Conferences and the like so may not want to do them on here.

Personally, I feel that they should continue as of course the people at conferences, etc. are not necessarily the same as on here. It also gives us a chance to experience some of the smaller mines and mining fields that don't get an 'airing' otherwise.

Chris

Rob Vernon is the main coordinator for the lectures at this years NAMHO Conference. He also attended the online session for Mark Hatton's presentation. Hopefully I am not speaking out of turn, but I don't see the potential for 'repeats' as an issue for the Conference's programme of lectures. There will certainly be speakers from a wide range of organisations, including Mark.

News on the final choice of venue will be released shortly, but it will accommodate both live and virtual speakers, so speakers might well find practising online useful.

Regards

Alan Robinson

Its a great idea now and after lockdown too, whenever that is!

As someone who does quite a lot of lecturing I think a lot of speakers would welcome an informal forum to try out their lectures before standing up in the more formal environment of a conference.

If I can get my head around the tech (a big ask) I would be more than happy to do a talk in this series at some point.

I think it's an excellent idea, sadly I don't think I have enough knowledge on anything to do one myself. I don't think it would negatively impact the NAMHO conference. It may even be a positive effect as it could potentially reach more folk who might be tempted to attend having had a taste. IP: 195.171.131.2

I'm sure that between the two of you, you could put a presentation together?

I'm going to do a short one on Parys Mountain but I will DEFINITELY need some tech help on it.
I simply don't have the time/patience/energy/eyesight to be messing about putting a presentation together from scratch.
I think I'll be doing the talking and Sinker Jnr will be putting the slides up for me Thumb Up Laugh

Sadly I don’t own a p.c that’s a major let down for me doing one, I could make all the slides and write the information with corresponding images of the mines but would have no way of presenting it , the main drawback to are area it has very little original photos . We have the information and surveys just little pictures apart from my own Laugh

An excellent idea and look forward to it. With my arthritis, Wookey Hole, Speedwell, and Pwll Mawr are just about my exploratory limits these days! IP: 87.80.53.182

If it's like the Coniston lecture, live via Zoom: Install Zoom on your device, create an account. A day or so before a lecture is due, an invitation url gets published on AN. A few minutes before the lecture starts, you open the url, which opens the lecture meeting in Zoom. I'd not used Zoom prior to Coniston lecture and was suprised at how smooth the whole thing was.

From your PC or laptop, having downloaded the Zoom software free from their site. On an iPad, tablet or mobile phone, again with the app loaded.
Then using the link that is published on AN the day before, your device opens Zoom and you are in the waiting room ready to be admitted when things start.
If you want to be seen or heard you will need a camera and mike for a PC but laptops and other devices all have them built in. You would be able to see the others and the talk, just be invisible and silent!
Once you have Zoom loaded you can test it by starting your own meeting to check camera and mike works.

I literally know nothing! Laugh Strangely I've never set foot in any of the local (ish) mines. I was talking to someone a few years ago about lining a trip up but then there was some sort of access palaver and it all fizzled out. I was quite surprised to hear there was still some degree of activity Thumb Up

If anyone is struggling to access Zoom and needs a talk through over the phone. Don't despair. PM me and I'll help.

If you've got as far as reading this thread on Aditnow, you can easily use Zoom.
