NY8008 : Site of Hartley smelt mill

taken 3 years ago, near to Hartley, Cumbria, Great Britain

Site of Hartley smelt mill
Site of Hartley smelt mill
This was once the site of a lead smelting mill, although evidence is now hard to find. Records show a single hearth mill here between 1714 & 1777, after which it may have fallen into disuse. Apart from a small area of flattened ground and a few protruding stones, there is little to see, although some of the stones in the wall to the right are dressed and others show signs of heating. This was small scale lead production almost a century earlier than the bigger mills such as Old Gang, Surrender and Grinton over in Swaledale.
