British Mining No 14 – The Manganese Mines of North Wales

by C. G. Down

The extraction of Manganese in North Wales has received very little attention from recent writers and this account of the history, use, and present day remains of the industry is long overdue.

Dr Down has written a very thorough and absorbing monograph which is well illustrated with maps, plans and photographs.
