Rosedale East - calcining kilns
Rosedale East - calcining kilns
Iron ore was mined on the east side of Rosedale between 1860 and 1926.
These `iron' kilns were used to calcine (roast) the ironstone to reduce the weight of material which had to be transported. The best-preserved northern section of this group of 3 kilns is shown in this photo.
