"The Lesser Known Coalmines of the Cannock Chase Coalfield” by (the late) Mick Drury

 This the16th 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 book is priced: £10.00 + p&p. to obtain your copy contact Alan Dean on: westcannock5s@yahoo.com or enquiries@ccmhs.co.uk.

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

"CANNOCK OLD COPPICE"  later  "HAWKINS COLLIERY COMPANY Ltd"

By Arthur Renhard, (the late) Mick Drury, Mick Lucas & Alan Dean

 

 This volume is the final work in this series of books by the "CCMHS" and marks the end of a long hard road of

 research that we all first put our feet on in 2002 at the birth

 of the society. The last book evolved through the efforts of 4

 people, Arthur Renhard, Mick Drury, Mick Lucas & Alan Dean

 all played their part in piecing together this historical record

 of a pit a village and a family 

"This is not only the record of the colliery but also the story                ONLY 5 COPIES OF THIS BOOK ARE NOW AVAILABLE

 of a family and the effect that both had on the South

 Staffordshire village of Cheslyn Hay. It is probably unique in

 the way life revolved around the three constituents of this

 narrative - the Colliery, the family and the village".

    

                                           The book is priced: £10.00 + p&p. and is available  contact Alan Dean on:  enquiries@ccmhs.co.uk.

 

The CCMHS would also like to thank MICK LUCAS our editor & JOHN GRIFFITHS our publisher who have worked tirelessly to produce a great series of historical reference books.

THANK YOU BOTH.
