I’ve just returned from an excellent presentation given by Kevin Dranfield, author of ‘Goyt Valley Miner’.

Kevin’s mother, Phyllis, was the eldest daughter of Jack and Mary Hewitt. Jack was the last of four generations of his family to mine in the Goyt. And was the last manager of the Casteridge Mine, just below Errwood Hall.

I’m hoping Kevin will allow me to include some of the information and photos from his book on the website.
