6 thoughts on “Wintergill Ironstone Mine

  1. Interesting – hadn’t heard of that one before. I suppose with mining being undertaken both in the (relatively) nearby Glaisdale and Rosedale areas there would have been several speculative attempts such as this one in the area.

  2. I think I have virtually all of Simon’s excellent books on the various ironstone mines in our district, but cannot recall mention of this one. Does anyone know if it has been written up in any way?

  3. In answer to my previous post Simon has included details of Wintergill in his latest publication ‘ A History of Iron Working at Glaisdale’. As usual this is an excellent and informative read, we have to be very thankful to Simon and Peter for producing such great work.
