The London Lead Company, owned by a remarkable group of Quaker industrialists, worked mines in the north of England, Derbyshire, Wales and Ireland, from 1692 to 1905. The enlightened owners were well ahead of their time, and provided model homes, subsidized food and medical care for their workforce. Mining and engineering researcher Arthur Raistrick documents these progressive social policies, and also provides an informative account of this historically important, but neglected, industry.
