14/131 Smelt Chimney at
SD 8830 6602

- II

Chimney stack. Late C18- early C19. Restored 1965-69. Gritstone rubble.
Circular, approximately 3 metres in diameter at base, approximately 5
metres high, reduced in width about half-way up and with a projecting
coping. An opening at the base on the north side was originally covered by
the flue from the furnaces on lower ground. The flue and mill remain as
earthworks only. The chimney was built originally to serve the lead mining
industry, the flue acting as a cooling chamber from which lead could be
removed, and to create an effective draught. In 1795 zinc ore was mined
nearby and was roasted and calcined at the mill, this industry flourishing
between 1800 and 1830. An important structure linked with a lost industry
of the moor area. A. Raistrick, Malham and Malham Moor, 1947, reprinted
1983, pp. 29, 62.
