Tom Duffy said:
Those that were living at Cleator Moor during the war years, will reminisce over the descriptions and old photographs of the town. The younger generation of today will marvel at how Cleator Moor used to be one of the richest towns in the world due to the Iron Ore – with labourers living in slums and land owners emulating Kings. This is a book for all to enjoy.

This revised and updated version of Cleator Moor Revealed brings to you more content, and images of past times. Tom Duffy discloses the 'highs and lows' of a town which was once at the heart of British Industry, feeding the Industrial Revolution of Great Britain. 
Cleator Moor, or Little Ireland, as the local residents affectionately know it, came into being during the 12th Century, with Monks working the land. The town grew from a few farmhouses into an important industrialised centre due to very pure Iron Ore that was held in huge quantities beneath the ground. 
From a settlement of 330 in 1688, Cleator Moor grew to house 10,420 souls by 1871 – thirty six percent of whom were Irish. The Irish in Cleator Moor were predominantly Roman Catholic but the general influx into the mines and industry of West Cumbria also brought others of a different persuasion from the same country and with them a particular sectarianism to add to the anti-Catholicism of Victorian England. 
For a short period, between 1860 and 1880, West Cumberland haematite held a monopoly control of the market. At that time, Cleator Moor became one of the richest mining areas in the world. 
Through the pages of this book, you'll discover important past events that help to preserve an Irish heritage, which is so important to the people and town of Cleator Moor. From the origins of its name through its development as a prosperous mining town, Tom Duffy has searched out all the kind of details that make this a fascinating read.

About Tom Duffy

Tom  Duffy was born in 1937, raised and educated in Cleator Moor. Like many from the town, he has the obligatory Irish lineage; with a mix of Manx thrown in for good measure.

Following his school years, he worked for a short period of time at Brannons Thermometers, before gaining employment at the Miller shoe factory in nearby Egremont.

In 1955, Tom carried out his National Service with the Border Regiment, and then returned to Millers in 1957. In 1975, during a great depression, he was made redundant.

Tom secured employment with British Nuclear Fuels Ltd in 1976. Then, when he retired in 1999, Tom began to research the history of his home town, and released his first book in June of 2003.

Tom is married to Margaret, has three children and five grandchildren.
