Top local history ferret Peter ‘Pedro’ Cutler, is on outstanding form right now. Not only is he an ace Panoramian, he’s also thrown himself into researching the history of mining in Brownhills with some degree of gusto, and it’s much appreciated. In the last few days, Peter has sent me the following two clippings from old local newspapers. Both contain interesting, and I’d wager controversial, information. I’m interested in where the mines in the first one are described to be. In the second, I’m intrigued by the location of the Brownhills shafts, and I’m wondering if it’s the grove.
Any contributions gratefully received, looking forward to hearing your views. Thanks again to Pedro, a true gentleman and top chap.
