This page has been created to credit and thank contributors to AditNow. Without their work adding content and maintaining the site, it would not be the valuable and growing resource that it currently is.
Of course thanks also go to everybody who contributes, from voting on photographs, to making a contribution in the forum and uploading photographs. All contributions are gratefully received and go to make the site better.
The regional editors are responsible for maintaining the Major Mining Regions facility, adding mines (in addition to the work done by many other members adding mines) and assigning mines to those regions. It is hoped this facility becomes a major resource over time.

I'm a member of the Carnkie History Forum and currently researching a book on the mines of the area with particular ref. to social conditions. Diffficult to get a new angle as obviously much has already been written.

ICLOK (South West England) (South Wales)
I like all things industrial, mainly engine houses and old mining / quarrying machinery. Done a lot of surface exp in Devon and Cornwall oh and of course Derbyshire Peak. Some experience underground in Derbys up to Med grade.
Clambered around old mines in Cornwall, the Lake District and North Pennines as a lad. Now overseas but still in the mining game.

JR (South West England)
I'm interested in most 'hard rock' mines and have done some underground exploration in the past (Forest of Dean iron mines and some of the easier slate mines). Now due to advancing years I don't consider myself safe to go underground except for 'tourist' (or very easy) mines. My main interest now is historical research of industrial processes and social history of mining populations. (Just don't get me started about what's been done to the Black Country in the last 25 years!).
Been interested in mining, since about 15, inparticular Derbyshire Lead Mines and Coal Mines. Like surface stuff and searching for hidden features. Also enjoy non mining industrial and general archeology

I have been going underground since my late teens and now get involved in more serious projects. I have recently completed the Talybont project, which was sucessful in re accessing workings below the Alltycrib hill. I am also responsible or involved with others for digging projects at Nenthead, Frongoch, Parc Lead Mine, Pantywrach, Henfwlch etc, with more lined up for the future.
