Hello Sue
Thanks for that site. I was aware of it as part of my side of the family come from Sunderland and Northumberland..... it was through researching that side for many years that I came across the other Mining site.
As the saying goes, "If you look down any hole in the ground around the world, you'll find a Cornishman digging for tin" (or coal or minerals or precious metals/stones or ore!)
Give my regards to Sunderland.
Best regards
Heather Carbis
