Remains of Tintown
Remains of Tintown
Street and terraces on which stood the village of Birchinlee ('Tin Town'), home to many of the navvies that build the Derwent Valley dams. The corrugated iron buildings were sold off once the dams were complete, though part of one is still to be seen in the nearby village of Hope SK1783.
