IN MEMORIAM – Nenthead Ore Dressing Mill

Nenthead, Cumbria, UK

Alastair Roberston
To put everything into context, the village of Nenthead in Cumbria is situated some 35 miles southeast from Carlisle, at the eastern edge of the county, bordering onto Northumberland and County Durham. This region of the north Pennines has been exploited for its metalliferous ores - lead, with its associated silver, zinc, iron and some copper - since Roman times and before.
