Esk Valley
Esk Valley
The hamlet of Esk Valley started life in 1860 as a row of four cottages, built for workers at the ironstone mines to the north. Beneath the living quarters were a blacksmiths’ shop, a joiner’s, a tiny office and a washroom. A few years later, as the workforce expanded, a terrace of 24 cottages was built on the other side of the former railway track (now 'Rail Trail' footpath). Esk Valley relied on the railway to bring coal, food and provisions until 1951, when the community raised enough money to construct the steep road leading down to the hamlet.
