THE DCC TIMELINE

Minor operations at Alderley Edge

1911-1919

At Alderley Edge…West Mine entrance in 1923

During this period, three separate but consecutive attempts were made to work the mines. The first was the Alderley Mining Company Ltd in 1911 followed by Allan Gibb and then the Alderley Copper Company Ltd. All these attempts did little real work although Wood and West Mines were re-equipped with railways into the main workings. The mines closed finally and the equipment was sold off in 1926.
