Pool with mine tips
There's a desolate yet attractive appearance to the landscape just back, (north-east), from Fremington Edge where the distant line of spoil heaps follows the course of a mineral vein. Despite the name Copperthwaite Allotment being nearby on OS maps, it's assumed that the workings were for lead ore.
