Ropehaugh Cottages, Dirt Pot

  • Description

    "Mill Cottages are on the right hand side (below and above the road). Mill Cottages were where the smelt mill workers lived. Smelters were paid more than miners and were often provided with better houses because smelting was such a highly skilled job. In the 19th and early 20th centuries several of the houses here and further along the road were shops." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2022.
