News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Coal Measure Comparison.
« Reply #1 on: August 12, 2013, 17:46:08 »
A while ago I stated that I had a chart that showed a comparison between several coal measures around the UK. Finally I have found it again (hidden in a book) and have scanned it. It is in two parts as it is quite a large piece of paper. I do not know when it was done, it is older than me so pre 1965  would be a good start. It also shows that we had the very best steam coal in the country at Betteshanger, when this document was produced. Now it goes on the Measure not the pit or face, Millyard was the main measure in Kent and I believe (open for correction please) that Betteshanger H was below that, so very deep (I have heard it referred to as 19's being 1,900 feet down (again open for correction).

I hope it is legible, if not please let me know and I will re-post in a higher resolution.

A day without learning something is a day lost and my brain is hungry. Feed me please.
