The latest  Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society publication is now available priced: £10.00 + p&p.

"The Lesser Known Coalmines of the Cannock Chase Coalfield” by MICK DRURY is the  16th mining publication by the Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society.

We have in fact now published 18 books if we include the two on "The Hutment Communities".

"The Lesser Known Coalmines of the Cannock Chase Coalfield” by MICK DRURY is a very involved book which has taken a vast amount of research and time by Mick. We at the society believe it does not have a parallel in any other coalfields publications (only our opinion) and are very proud to be able to publish this book for Mick. He should also be proud of his achievement in producing such a volume and record of the mines that have been forgotten by almost everyone in the area's that these small mines were worked.

THE CCMHS THANKS MICK FOR ALL HIS EFFORT, TIME AND PATIENCE IN PRODUCING THIS BOOK WE KNOW HE HAD MANY SETBACKS AND FRUSTRATIONS DURING HIS RESEARCH.

                                                                                 SO THANK YOU MICK

            to obtain your copy contact the Chairman Alan Dean on: westcannock@talktalk.net or enquiries@ccmhs.co.uk.
