Needed - Photographs of PDMHS Activities

by Chris James | May 19, 2017
We are currently looking for more photos of PDMHS activities to include on the website. Can you help us?
As part of our efforts to refresh the PDMHS website, we are looking to include more photos on the site, and we'd like to use some that our members themselves have taken. So if you fancy yourself as a budding David Bailey, and have a few good photos that you'd be prepared to let us use, we'd love to hear from you!
We are particularly keen to have pictures that include people in them (preferably looking as if they're enjoying themselves!) with subjects such as PDMHS projects, heritage walks, underground trips or general views of lead mining scenery.
Just a handful of your very best work is all we need. All photos used will be credited, and don't forget to include caption information. Please send the pictures as JPEG files, and if you know how to resize them, they only need to measure 1000 pixels on the longest side. If you don't know how to resize them, just send them as they are and we can do it for you. Please send them to
To give you an idea of the sort of thing we're after, here's a photo taken on one of our recent heritage walks in Lathkill Dale.
