Traces of old industry at Little Longrigg
Traces of old industry at Little Longrigg
The eye is drawn to the middle distance where there is evidence of some workings on the slopes of Birkett Hill. In the foreground is the crescent shaped outline of an old turf and stone dam, almost certainly used in the 18thC for the purpose of hushing on nearby slopes in the search for galena [lead ore].
