Mill Bank Under Snow

Mill Bank Under Snow

A wintery scene of Mill Bank, as well as the fields of Kilton Mill, pre 1965. I know this as the former police houses were built on the field in front of the lone building which for many years was the JPG works site.

This image of the old Skinningrove Mine and Mill Bank under snow has not as yet been dated. We know it is pre 1965, but can any one assist with a date?

The Bank from Loftus

The Bank from Loftus

Captioned ”Kilton Bank, Loftus” this image is more familiarly known as Mill Bank or Loftus Bank. Sadly both wall, gate and onlookers now long gone. In the background the trestle way which carried the ironstone from the mine across the valley bottom can be seen, can anybody assist with a possible date?

Before or After?

Before or After?

This glass plate image shows four gentlemen take their ease on the footbridge over Whitecliffe Beck on Glover’s Path at the foot of the steps up to Liverton Mines. Now was this before or after the steps have been navigated?

Kilton Mill and Mill Bank

Kilton Mill and Mill Bank

Kilton Mill and Mill Bank long before the road was altered. The image clearly shows the railway line on the eastern side of Kilton Beck which carried the ore from Whitecliffe Mine to the Loftus (Skinningrove) Mine before being transporterd via the bucket system to the Skinningrove Iron works at Carlin How. The postcard published by the R & R Company is postmarked 6th July 1906.

A different view of the bus crash from the 1950s showing the United bus still in the stream, viewed from the Loftus side of the bridge, possibly from the former railway line that linked Whitecliffe mine with Loftus (Skinningrove) mine.

An early 20th century photograph of Kilton Mill. The old road layout at the bottom of Mill Bank is clearly seen, the gentleman sitting on the wall would now be in the middle of the new road; the mill would still be working at this date.
