NI Logo 2+T Adit-&-Pit-IMG_5622a 2

This site, close to the Nidderdale Way, has been recently identified and has not yet been the subject of a detailed investigation but it is clear that it consists of an adit and its associated spoil heap. There is stone walkway on the spoil heap and shale that is typical of the waste from iron mining in this area is clearly visible.

It is likely that this excavation site is associated with a smelting site at Long Laithe 250 metres away where slag has been discovered.

Sykes Bank, between Ramsgill and Lofthouse
