i have just read with interest your article on the Seneley Green Drift Mine. A little unusual for a woman, but my interest is that I am Jack Ratcliffe's grand daughter. Sadly Jack died in 1972. I am earger to learn anything about his time at Stones, as I believe he trained many a new miner during his time there.
