NZ6814 : Moorsholm Docks

Moorsholm Docks
Moorsholm Docks
Right on the High Street of this delightful little village that just missed out on the ironstone mining activities of the rest of East Cleveland, is a row of six sunken sandstone water troughs that have become known as the Moorsholm Docks. Probably dating from the 19th-century they are fed by piped water from a spring on the moors. The name seems to be a bit of a mystery; some suggest it came about purely as a result of a ‘wag’.
