Description

Lindsey Porter HB 208pp

The history of one of the deepest and richest mines of its age, this is one of the most complete Peakland business histories researched from previously unused records kept at Chatsworth House. This book covers Ecton Mine and its two smelters (at Ecton and Whiston), the Kingsley and Foxt Wood collieries, the mines three brickyards, three sand quarries, its limekiln, claypits and coke works. It also shows how the mine fitted into the national context and how the Duke recovered his huge level of income after the mine failed in 1790.
