NZ8201 : Ironstone Outcrop, Carr Wood, East Side of West Beck

taken 12 years ago, near to Beck Hole, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Ironstone Outcrop, Carr Wood, East Side of West Beck
Ironstone Outcrop, Carr Wood, East Side of West Beck
Visible from the Public Footpath between Beck Hole and Mallyan, this outcrop was worked for a short period in the 1860's. Their tramway, spoil heaps and calcining remains are overgrown and only just visible. The ironstone was not of particularly good quality and the venture was a bit of a failure. The mines on the west side of the beck, now completely hidden in Carr Wood, were a little more successful.
