Ian Tyler,HB 296pp-

A History of Cumbria's Gunpowder Industry This latest book by Ian Tyler is another well researched and well told story, documenting an industry which was fearful and horrifying when things went wrong. The gunpowder mills were situated in gentle, low lying country amongst coppiced woods and small knolls of land. It was a dangerous business and the author takes us through its history in his usual comprehensive style. The book includes details of the particular Mills, supported by high quality sketch plans, historical information and B&W photos. There is a useful Glossary of Terms, a listing of each mill the dates of its operation a grid reference, the names and duties of its workers, the date they were employed and the area they lived in. The Mills included in this book are Old and New Sedgwick, Bassinghyll, Low and High Gatebeck, Low Wood, Elterwater, Black Beck.
