Carlton & Kirby Alum Works

Tuesday: May 16th – Carlton & Kirby alum works – Duration 3-3½ hours
Meet at Lordstones café car park (NZ 523 030), at the top of Carlton bank, at 10:30am. This is a route
which combines two out-and-back walks; firstly, we head west to visit the site of Carlton alum
works, and then head east to the site of the lesser known Kirby alum works. In both cases, the route
follows a contour line and so is largely free from any significant ascending or descending. Given
reasonable weather, the views across the plains towards Teesside, and over towards the Pennines
will be superb.

A small charge of £2 per person will be made on each walk to offset the costs of Insurance. Please
wear appropriate footwear and have clothing suitable for the likely weather conditions on that day.
On walks of over two hour’s duration, it is suggested that you bring food and drink as we usually
stop around halfway for a lunch break.
