Estate track climbs above mine spoil, Great Eggleshope Beck
Estate track climbs above mine spoil, Great Eggleshope Beck
The track leads upwards to a large shooting hut on the slopes of Harnisha Hill. The valley below finds Great Eggleshope Beck weaving between lead mining spoil tips representing a truly impressive volume of waste rock taken from underground. The photographer was standing on one long spoil tip (through which the estate track has been cut) which extends another two hundred and fifty metres downstream, separating the beck from a large level area with a number of old buildings and lots more spoil tips.
