Looking along the launder that is supplying the one working wheel and its single set of stones. It was a dull and wet Friday lunchtime.

Boot is a very small village / Hamlet in Upper Eskdale. It sits at the foot of Hardknott Pass. The village was the centre of the Iron ore mining in the Esk Valley and is the eastern terminal for the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. Today the economy depends on tourism.
