This recording begins with a history of the collieries, which were opened in 1652, and which were being run commercially in 1750. They brought huge employment to the area, including foresters, farmers, domestic staff for the Big Houses, administrators for the mines and workers for the saw mill. The landlords, the local place-names and the religious denominations are all discussed in this recording.
