Bulletins

Bulletins have been published by the Society since 1976 and all past copies are available in digital format on one CD. See Order Form for details.
In 2008, Bulletin 19 won the Association for Industrial Archaeology award for Journals.
Originally, Bulletins were the main periodical of the Society and contained
a range of articles and reports written
by members. More recently, Bulletins have developed into a series of occasional monographs on a single topic.

Bulletin 22

The Development of Colliery Company Housing in Moira

(1811-1916)

Bulletin 22

Bulletin 22, The Development of Colliery Company Housing in Moira (1811-1916) has been a long time in the making! It began life in the late 1970’s and builds on the original work by Mike Bannister and the late George Bowles, and was completed by Dr Wendy Freer who also studied the demographics relating to occupancy and living space, birth and death rates, and occupations, to produce a well-rounded view of the life and times, quite literally at the coal face, during the period under scrutiny. A primary feature of the book, however, are the highly detailed hand drawn plans of a row of colliery houses made in 1979 by Mike and George.
