Welcome to the Fedj-el-Adoum Publishing website

Fedj-el-Adoum Publishing was formed in 2009 to enable me to self-publish a series of local history books featuring the history of coal mining in Yorkshire.

I have always had an interest in the development of the Yorkshire Coalfield, particularly concerning the creation of new mining settlements to house the workforce required at the collieries. The history of coal mining in Yorkshire stretches back many hundreds of years and with the closure of the last deep coal mine at Kellingley Colliery at the end of 2015, I felt that I would like to record the history of some of these collieries, now that they are passing into memory.

This has now resulted in the production of several books which are available to purchase through this website on the publication list page. A links page is included if you wish to explore the subject further.

I hope you have enjoy your visit to the website.

Best wishes

Dave Fordham
