New book: 'The Portland Path'

Jacksdale Area Culture and Heritage have published a 68-page book describing "the early railways linking the collieries at Selston with the Cromford Canal at Jacksdale, the methods used and the people involved."

The Portland Path Project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund with the aim of highlighting the history of a tramway that stretched between the Portland
No. 1 colliery, in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, to Portland Wharf and Butterly Iron Works in Jacksdale.

The book costs £4.95 and will be launched on 3 June on Jacksdale Soldier Day at the Jacksdale Miners' Welfare Club.
