NZ0003 : Ruined farm house on the fellside

taken 7 months ago, near to Langthwaite, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Ruined farm house on the fellside
Ruined farm house on the fellside
One of several such ruins in Arkengarthdale. This one is unnamed on old 6" maps, but seems typical of the type once lived in by lead miners and families. It has often been said that lead miners were also part time farmers [the reverse is also true], with much of the farming done during the summer and the mining through the winter, neither occupation usually earning enough on its own.
