Skinningrove Mines and Railway to Liverton

A good image of Skinningrove valley, post-1911 and pre WWI (no signs of the army camp on the field below the railway), showing just how busy this little valley was!  The picture very obviously taken from Carlin How. on the left we have Skinningrove Mine, with the stables and just visible the Overmen’s Houses and on the right we have Duckhole Pit just coming into the picture.  Kilton Mill takes the stage left of centre in the middle, the viaduct (now an embankment) away in the background and towering over it all in the haze is Liverton Mines shale heap.  The sweep of rail track cutting through the image is the middle section of the ”Zig-Zag”.
