• Publication week for Descent 296

    'Having just come back from expedition jetlagged and pushed for time, I thought adding eight extra pages to Descent would be the best way to get back into the swing of things. I hope you'll all find that the extra hours were well spent'.

Aberllefenni Slate Quarry - A history of the last underground slate working in Wales. Jon Knowles, A4, Hardback, 280printed pages £35.00

In Jon's own words "the book is a culmination of over 15 years exploration underground and archival research" It's a credit to Jon's expertise and determination it's full of his own colour photographs, with black and white historical record photographs. He has also provided a lot of detail of the industry itself with the workshops and machinery supported diagrams and drawings , there are also plans of the mine . Plus a nice touch an aerial photograph with a labelled photo on opposite page tus not detracting from the original. I could easily go on raving about this volume but it is really an excellent piece of original work

Does it mention who's responsible for unprotected twin and earth in a damp mining environment? :p Only joking, looks a good read!
