A Century in Stone:  An Extract

The 19th-century ironstone mining boom had a huge effect on the North York Moors – a story being told by our Landscape Partnership scheme known as ‘Land of Iron’. This extract from a ground-breaking documentary highlights the relationship between the North York Moors and the Cleveland ironstone mines, which made the northeast the iron-mining and iron-making capital of the world and laid the foundations of industrial Teesside.
