Skinningrove Mine

Skinningrove Mine, from Carlin How once again (this time captioned ”Loftus Mines”) the stables are centre foreground with Overmen’s Cottages behind them (lovingly named ”Hoss Muck Row” by the locals, for obvious reasons); behind that the picking belt and heapstead. In more recent times part of the remaining buildings have been converted to living accommodation and the renowned ‘Kaskane/Covell’s Bar’.

    Can someone tell me if the Road in the foreground is “Hoss Muck Row” I always thought it was “Terrace”.
    If it is I have walked this way to visit my Aunt Ada Kennedy – an ANGEL to me!
