M Gill A5 105pp 21 figs 10 plates

Although Keighley Area is famed for its textile and engineering industries few people know of the many small coal pits which were an important part of the local econnomy before the coming of the canal and the railway. These were worked for at least 5 centuries with the last one closing in 1932. One persion who was aware of them was Paul Davison whose keen interest in local geology led him to study the industry and its history in the Aire Valley and its tributtaries between Bingley and Skipton. He made copious notes but his untimely death prevented him preparing them for publication. Fortunately, however, the notes were deposited at Cliffe Castle Museum where Mike Gill was able to combine them with his own work to produce this volume
