Shropshire, March 1858

 

Colliery Guardian, 13th March 1858
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT AT SHREWSBURY.
The Snailbeach Works

Great anxiety was felt during the past week from a rumour that the number of hands employed under the Snailbeach Company was about again to be reduced.

I am glad to hear that, such is not to be the case at present, Stephen Eddy, Esq., the manager, having found them employment for the present. Some of the other mines in the neighbourhood promise better, and there is every reason to hope that the present depression will soon give way to a more healthy state of things.
