Foundations of Tin City, Boulby Ironstone Mine
Foundations of Tin City, Boulby Ironstone Mine
The Boulby Ironstone Mine was established in 1903 on what was effectively a green field site. Accommodation therefore had to be provided for the miners. This was done using the latest building technique of corrugated steel sheeting (similar to the Mine Office NZ7618 : Former Mine Office, Boulby Ironstone Mine). Known locally as Tin City the accommodation comprised forty cottages and a school. One cottage became a shop and another a chapel. The last residents were rehoused in the new Coronation Road in Loftus in 1937.
