Following the recent death of Derek Brumhead, Jim Spencer, Honorary Life Member of the MGA, reflects on Derek's significant contribution to the MGA over several decades.

The main article in the current issue is the second part of a report on a September 2023 field trip to Alderley Edge. This second part covers the underground exploration; the first part, covering surface features, was published in the December 2023 newsletter. This trip was organised jointly with GeoLancashire.
