Sike Head Chimney and West Farm, Jeffrey's Rake
Both legacies of the North Pennines miner/farmer landscape, Sike Head Chimney is thought to be the one mentioned by WH Auden is his poem 'New Year Letter 1940'...
"The derelict lead smelting mill,
Flued to its chimney up the hill,
That smokes no answer any more,
But points, a landmark on BOLTS LAW
The finger of all questions."
West Farm was the family home of the Paull family, who moved from Devon in the mid 19th Century to Hunstanworth to mine lead. For more information go to LinkExternal link
