Description

Simon Chapman, A5, SB, 92pp

When the Great War came, Palmers Shipbuilding and Iron Company’s fortunes took a turn for the better. They were able to supply battleships for the Royal Navy and make good losses in shipping due to enemy submarine activity. Regrettably there was also a downside, miners volunteered for the forces in droves and transport by sea became hazardous due to German submarines. As a result the company’s fortunes were somewhat shaded. At the
conclusion of the war, commerce initially returned to pre war levels but suddenly faltered and fell off. All of this is chronicled in Simon’s story in great detail. The mine and its parent company suffered a slow and torturous decline until everything was finished in 1936.
Simon has drawn up extensive archival records and many are recorded in full. The relationship between the Loftus Mine and Grinkle Mine is thoroughly detailed. Together with Part I, this book forms a total picture of
mining activities on the Palmer’s Easington Estate. In colour, every reader will have a real addition to his
library
