Duckhole and Skinningrove Station

This is a view from Mount Pleasant Road/Wesley Terrace in Carlin How, looking up the valley. The building to the right is the gable end of the Zion Chapel now disused and standing at the head of the footpath to the Skinningrove Valley. Simon Chapman tells us: “The first leg of the ’Zig-Zag’ can just be seen running down into the valley next to the protection signal, making it look like a double track. I would guess the date as about 1925. The kilns at Liverton Mines have been dismantled and a solitary headgear awaits demolition”.

Thank to Simon Chapman for dating and the update.
