A charcoal burning blast furnace dating from 1736. Isaac Wilkinson's cylinder bellows powered by water were first applied here. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument but is temporarily closed to the public while structural issues are considered. There is a good view from the bridleway that goes past the site.
