This is a long shot, I know but I am looking for a copy of 'British Mining No.36 - The Kelton & Knockmurton Iron Mine.

In return I can offer cash .... or :

Shropshire Caving & Mining Journal Account No.15 : Snailbeach recent explorations By S.R.Holding 1992.

Although I don't have a copy myself, PDMHS recently had a clear-out of their library and put a load of duplicate copies of old NCMRS/NMRS stuff in the shop at the Matlock Bath museum. I'll have a look next time I'm down there to see if this one is amongst them.

Cheers,
Adam

last time i was there they had quite a lot of british mining books at the killhope shop dunno if that one was there unless its no longer in print,but on a lighter note im over the moon ive just aquired coal and the coalfields in wales by f j north 1931 (1st and second ed) and the geology of the manchester coalfield by h m stationary office 1931,the latter ive been after for years both very interesting reads.

Now thats a result. Not too far away either. Will take a big chunk out of my monthly book budget, but it is rare.

Thanks again Flowers
