Technical reports

There is sometimes a case for preserving documentation relating to Thorne and Hatfield Moors, but which, for a variety of reasons, will not appear in Thorne & Hatfield Moors Papers. THMCF Technical Reports were designed to do this in a permanent, consistent and retrievable way, in a relatively simple and inexpensive format.
Since 1999, 17 Technical Reports have been published. They are A4 sized, and usually comb-bound with blue card covers.
