The district around Grosmont was the first in modern times to supply ironstone to the industries in the NE of England. From the construction of the Whitby to Pickering Railway in 1833 ironstone was shipped from the port of Whitby to the Smelters in County Durham. As the Industrial Revolution got underway demand increased more mines were opened and soon ironworks were established and in 1862 were set up in the heart of Grosmont near the station. Few records still exist as ever Simon has researched in detail and produced this thorough and detailed account which is unique in its breadth and extent
