Pond Cottages, Lumsdale
Pond Cottages, Lumsdale
These were originally industrial buildings, housing two lead-smelting cupolas. Although lead was mined on the opposite side of the Derwent Valley, in the limestone area, smelting was carried out here because of the availablity of timber for the furnaces. The plant was obsolete by the last quarter of the 19th century, so the buildings were converted for residential use by workers at the newly developed cotton mill at the foot of the valley.
