DCC RECORDS

For many years, Club members have placed on record information about their caving and mining activities.  All this information is kept in the Club records which contain information about caving in general, caving regions, and projects and expeditions.  In addition, there is a separate section for Alderley Edge.  The full list of the contents of the records is available on the Club pages of the website but you will need a password to read these.  The list below is a summary.

For the benefit of historians (mine or otherwise), a font library is available to help with transcription of old documents.  It includes 'long-s', ligatures such as 'ct' and 'st', etc.  A demonstration PDF document can be downloaded HERE where there is a copy of a transcript from a manuscript item about Castle Rock.
