Men of Lead, Miners of the Yorkshire Dales. By David Joy

  • £1499

This book is a portrayal of miners rather than mining.  It looks at a fascinating range of individuals from rich aristocrats to men who only ventured underground because they were poverty-stricken.  Special attention is given to key mining communities - Swaledale as well as Greenhow, Grassington and Hebden.


David Joy MBE is a former editor of The Dalesman who has written more than 40 books, mainly on the Yorkshire Dales and railways.
