Peak District Mining History Field Guides

I have written a series of field guides to mining history (and some geology and other historical notes) for selected areas in the Peak District. Each guide consists of a written field guide, maps, and digital location data for GPS devices.

The first guide describes three itineraries near Castleton: New Rake and Cave Dale, Pindale and Siggate, and Dirtlow Rake.
Version 1.0 published May 2023.

The second contains two itineraries around Millers Dale: Maury Rake and Tideswell Dale.
Version 1.0 published December 2023. More itineraries are in preparation for Millers Dale.

The third looks at coal mining west of Buxton, specifically the area around Derbyshire Bridge in the upper Goyt Valley, above Burbage, and across to Thatch Marsh and Cisterns Clough.
Version 1.0 published January 2024.
