Traditional "Haslingden Flag" fence
Traditional "Haslingden Flag" fence
Haslingden Flag stone, which was mined at Top 'o Slate quarry adjacent to the site, was widely used in East Lancashire and was in demand throughout the country due to its tough hard wearing characteristics. Its use as fencing was more local to East Lancs and many examples survive in the district. The uprights were often joined together with iron clips to aid stability.
