Booze
Booze
At the height of the lead mining activities in the middle of the nineteenth century there were over two hundred inhabitants in Booze. There are now just a handful with several houses in ruins. The hamlet is only accessible by a very steep road and was only connected to mains electricity in the 1960s. The name Booze probably means 'the house by the bend'.
