Description

Andrew Scarfe, Hard back 315mm x 255mm, 232pp colour photos and plans including a large pull out plan

This must be the best value mining book I have ever seen the very large publication means it will deservedly stand out in your book collection it is superb. No expense has been spared to produce this volume with full colour modern photos and plans supplemented with black and white historical records.

The Book traces the development of the Great Laxey Mine and charts its eventual decline as the mineral vein became more elusive and competition ores brought about a fall in profits. The machinery is explained in detail with technical drawings and plans . With the building of the world famous Lady Isabella Waterwheel described in full. The lives and working conditions of the miners are also part of the story. There were accidents , deaths, strikes, hardship and appalling working conditions,and the comradeship of a close knit mining community which helped those down on their luck is also considered..

In addition the other mines in the Laxey area are also described including Snaefell Mine, Glen Roy Mine, North and East Laxey Mines and Dhoon Rhennie Mine
