Furness Iron: The Physical Remains of the Iron Industry and Related Woodland Industries of Furness and Southern Lakeland

£9.99

Product description

Condition: good clean copy, light shelf wear to cover, no markings inside.

From the back cover:
'Furness and the neighbouring parts of southern and western Cumbria had a lively and significant iron industry in the 18th and 19th centuries, growing out of a tradition of iron working stretching back to the medieval period and probably much earlier. Unlike the similar iron-rich regions of the Weald and the Forest of Dean, Furness has not received the attention it deserves as a cradle of this vital industry. The physical remains of the iron industry and its supporting woodland industries, surviving both as standing buildings and as archaeological field monuments, are widespread in the fells of High Furness and the lowlands of the Furness peninsula, and in many cases they are very well preserved.'
