SCMC Publications - DVDs
In the past few years mining in Britain has undergone considerable changes. Modern "state-of-the-art" mines have often closed within a few years of opening, and some have even been abandoned before they were finished.
Old abandoned mines have become the focus of attention for planners and developers and hundreds of sites have been filled in, demolished and made "safe".
Working in conjunction with I.A.Recordings an attempt has been made to record something of Britain's underground heritage, before it is too late.
Topics covered in the 1993 to 2004 Journals are:
- Historic Mines of Spain Vol. 3 - a record of visits made by Club members in 2016 to historic mines and related structures in the West of Andalucía and Castilla-La Mancha. Available on DVD and Blu-ray.
