Stone flags at Carperby stone mine.
Why bother to mine for stone? This is high quality sandstone which splits easily and is suitable for flagged floors and paths as well as for roofing. The mine was busy during the 19th century and the construction of the railway through Wensleydale helped to boost trade. The mine finally closed as late as the 1930's.
