Hob Hill Ironstone mine was one of the smallest to operate in Cleveland. It operated from 1865 to 1875 when exhausted it was abandoned. When ironstone became scarce it was reopened to extract the ironstone previously deemed to be too poor to work in earlier years. Workings continued until the 1920s making this period of workings longer than the first. It is fortunate that records exist in the form of regular reports from the mine viewer to Lord Zetland and from these the author has been able to build up a comprehensive picture of operations.
