We are normally an active group of people interested in the exploration and study of mines and caves in Britain, Europe and ... well anywhere actually!

Despite the Coronavirus crisis and non-relaxation of restrictions the Club was still able to hold the Conference, but in a scaled back form. We are unable to offer camping on site (luckily there was plenty of camping and accommodation sites in the area) and were not able to offer a social event on the Friday evening.
However, the socially distanced trips and talks were able to go ahead. The talks proved to be very technologically challenging, with a mix of 'live' talks in the hall interspersed with Zoom presentations, plus some delegates watching in the hall and others on Zoom! All in a remote village hall in Shropshire. For those who were on trips and missed the talks, they were recorded and will be available to anyone registered for the conference to watch online.
To everyone who worked so hard to make this conference happen - judging from the feedback from delegates, you also made it a very successful and enjoyable conference, despite the COVID restrictions. Also, a special thanks to the speakers and delegates who had the confidence to travel to Shropshire to join in or take the time to participate online. Thank you.
Best of luck to Cleveland Mining Heritage Society who are organising the 2022 NAMHO Conference at Grosmont, North Yorkshire. Make a note in your diary now, I hope to see you there!

The mine tub that was at Stiperstones School has now been moved to the Snailbeach.
Some damage has been noted at Black Tom engine house, a work party is planned to clean it up and repair the damage.
We have been holding the Friday monthly meetings online since the first Lockdown along with online 'after meeting' presentations/talks. You can join meetings via your browser so you don’t need to install any Zoom software. All you need is a webcam and microphone - most modern laptops have them.
Meeting details are usually sent out the day before. So why not join us for the next one? Let the secretary know if you are not getting the meeting details.
