    Lead mining

    In the background in this picture, you can see Fremington Edge, the horseshoe formed and very steep cliff overlooking Reeth. This was formed when the latest ice age stopped and as the ice retreated, it brought big chunks of rock with it, leaving only the strongest bit standing. Framington Edge is full of old lead mines and a walk here should be done with care so you don't fall down a shaft or get stuck in a pile of mining waste. Lead mining existed in the Dales since Roman days but it was in the 18th and 19th centuries that Reeth was an important lead mining town. Read more about it on my museum tip.

    Like most Yorkshire villages, Reeth has a methodist chapel. It is just off the Green and was built in 1796.
