Braithwaite Lead Smelt Mill at Cote, Waldendale
Braithwaite Lead Smelt Mill at Cote, Waldendale
This chimney, a short length of horizontal flue and some foundations are all that remain of a small lead smelt mill at the foot of the bridleway at Cote in Waldendale that went over to Carlton in Coverdale. Locally mined lead was converted into metallic lead in a furnace called an ore hearth. Peat, dried wood and coal was the fuel for this smelting process. A working shift of 12 to 15 hours produced about one ton of lead. The mill was last used in the 1870s.
