Site of the Gaunless Smelt Mill

  • Description

    "The mill operated from 1790 to 1890 and was supplied with coal from local collieries. Lead ore was brought for smelting from the lead ore fields of Teesdale. The only remaining building is the manager's house, seen here on the left." Photo by Roger Smith, 2009.
