Boulby Potash

The landlady kindly pointed out the large red stone to the rear (with the riding hat on top) as potash mined from Boulby over 1km underground. The lighter coloured stone at the front is polyhalite which is a new bed of mineral being mined at Boulby.

The cup dates from 1980 and commemorates 1 million tons, although its not clear whether that was from opening or that year.
