Kinniside Mine was located near Hazel Holme and there was also a smelting-mill belonging to the London Lead Company. Kinniside Common is an extensive open area. Also, notable here is Blakely Raise (aka Kinniside) Stone Circle. In the 19th century, Kinniside was a township in the chaperly of Ennerdale. Since 1866, the area has been part of Ennerdale and Kinniside Civil Parish.
