  • Description

    "A lead mine entrance at the foot of North Rake or Tanner Hush. A hush is the result of a crude method of ore extraction. A dam is built on a stream above the seam. When there is sufficient water the dam is burst and the resultant scouring by the torrent exposes the ore. Tanner Hush is one of the longest in the Dales and was worked for over two hundred years."
