Hi Roger,
yes those are both excellent little books, well worth a mention.
By coincidence I recommended the second one, "Fine Coal", on this forum only a few months ago.

Just to add to your notes, the original publication dates from c1930 so details the later, larger mines.
It was produced by the Forest's own Ian Pope. By another coincidence, just this week he announced the latest in his series of truly excellent books about the Forest's railways and associated industry has just gone to the printers. "Severn & Wye Railway Volume 5" is about Lydney Docks, and should be available to buy for Christmas from Black Dwarf Lightmoor publications.
