BCRA Online Archive - BSA Records


Well-known member
Having resolved a couple of potential issues, I have, for the time being, moved the three currently available BSA Records volumes from the test Online Archive to the main BCRA Online Archive.

The BSA Records are held by the British Geological Survey, and a large proportion of them have been digitised by Alan Jeffreys and friends in Glasgow. These three volumes were added to the Online Archive as part of a feasibility study, in conjunction with Bob McIntosh of the BGS. The Gaping Gill volume has been available on the archive for some time, and the two new ones relate to the Peak District.

I am hoping that we will be adding additional volumes in the near future, but that depends on various issues, and it may even be necessary to withdraw the latest two volumes. So if you have interest in the contents, don't delay, as they may disappear!
