Val Scully




Historian Bill Lancaster reveals how nationally significant the Derwent Valley has been in the development of the mining industry, and Peter Stark’s visionary essay poses the fascinating question as to whether the level of innovation involved in the industrial developments in the area’s mining and steel production could not now be applied to the global challenges we face.


Illustrated in colour by photographs, graphs, historic maps and engravings, this quality A4 book has 52 pages and a softback cover.


An accompanying PowerPoint for secondary school students and staff is available here.
