Description

Ian Spensley, SB, 175 x 245, 330pp, 8 colour pages and 170 pictures and plans

This is a most thorough and well presented publication and is well worth adding to your Library

(Authors synopsis) It contains the full history of lead, zinc, barytes, coal, stone mining and a brief section on opencast limestone and freestone quarrying.
There is a 40 page section on Social History from the sixteenth century to the end of the nineteenth.

In the wider context, I have discussed the history of mining in the dale as effected by not only mining in the surrounding dales but on a national and international basis. The history of coal mining has turned out to be one of the most interesting subjects, Preston Moor Colliery at the end of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries was a major producer, nearly matching those in South Durham.

Many anecdotes are included, such as Lord Scrope having Thomas Rudd locked up in York Castle gaol for non payment of of the £400 annual rental of Preston Moor Colliery in the 1620's, when Rudd moved his family in with him Scrope wanted to move him to the Marshalsea in London. Echos of Little Dorit.

William Waller (the "viper in the nest" of the Mine Adventures of England) also turns up at Cotterdale Colliery where he systematically ruined Ewan Waller in 1691. The history of the flag (sandstone slates) quarries led me to looking at local architecture. Coal mining played an important part of the local limestone quarrying and lime burning. This connection led naturally through to quarrying limestone for steel making as well as road building.

Thanks to a thesis by Coles, I have been able to bring to light much of the history of lead mining in the fifteenth century not only in Wensleydale but also in Swaledale and Arkengarthdale in particular. One of the earliest legal cases to come to light was one 1371 when a number of miners were unlucky enough to get on the wrong side of Henry Percy at the Bishopdale/Buckden Gavel Mine.
