On steep western slopes of the Lincolnshire Wolds, between Market Rasen and Caistor, is a large outcrop of ironstone which was mined between 1867 and 1969. Most was dug by underground mining but some was gained by digging away the hillsides. Buildings, railways and tramways also helped to transform the hillsides above Claxby and Nettleton into an industrial landscape.

This book details the history of the development, growth and closure of the mines. It describes the machinery and tells of the miners themselves, the risks they took, how they worked and relaxed. It is a human story of exploration, innovation and hard physical work which has left a legacy to be seen in today’s still beautiful landscape.
