Grosmont Ironworks Drawing

Geotag Icon Show on map

Another image from Rev. Atkinsons ‘History of Cleveland Ancient and Modern’ that shows a hugely different scene from today in the village of Grosmont, now known for the steam trains. This shows a heavy industrial scene with blast furnaces for producing iron which remained until 1892.

Some pieces of the blast furnaces do still stand in the car-park which I visited back 2010

  1. Yes it is a good resource the 1849 Survey shows the blast furnaces and the internal rail lines. By the 1890s survey everything is marked as disused of course including the mine. It’s interesting to see on the oldest map the line of the railway up the incline and the current Goathland Station isn’t yet built of course.
