Bell’s Pit – Carlin How

Bell’s pit, due to its ownership by Bell Brothers, at Carlin How, was more popularly known as ”Duck Hole” (because of the very wet working conditions), it was towards the end of its working life known as North Loftus Mine. Bells Huts in Carlin How were originally built to house the workers for this mine; with just a short walk down hill to reach it! This image was probably taken by T. C. Booth of Loftus.
