looking down on the work party site
gorse is to be cleared from this area to reveal the leat to the smelter
trying to start a gorse burning fire ..
.. soon successful in the strong wind
our main job was feeding gorse onto the fire ..
.. some of it quite big branches
Tom with his chain saw has cleared one bank of the leat ..
.. and now the other side is almost gorse free
looking up the leat with Carrock Fell behind
looking over our fire to other parts of the old smelter
a 19th century map showing the smelter which used to have buildings - now long gone
looking back on the site as the fire dies down
lots of water in the High Wath ford
