The Brendon Hills are a range of hills in western Somerset, hills merge level into the eastern side of Exmoor and are included within the Exmoor National Park.

Iron Ore in New England In the preindustrial and early industrial period, when longdistance travel was difficult, New Englanders relied on local sources for metals, minerals, and building stone. The glacial landscape of New England, dotted with bogs, provided a ready supply of 34bog iron34 ore to fill the forges of many an early blacksmith.
The Wealden iron industry was located in the Weald of southeastern was formerly an important industry, producing a large proportion of the bar iron made in England in the 16th century and most British cannon until about 1770.

Though some lead was obtained from the flats by the Beaumont Company during the early 1860s, the Heights mine was principally worked by the Weardale Iron Company between 1850 and 1868 as a source of iron ore. Commercial iron deposits were found in the flats surrounding the veins as limonite derived from the oxidation of iron carbonates
As the industrial revolution developed, so did the iron industry. A set of innovations, from different materials to new techniques, allowed iron production to expand greatly. In 1709, Darby became the first man to smelt iron with coke which is made from heating coal. Although this was a key date, the impact was limited as the iron was
As a result, a number of highcost iron ore mines have been closed and suspended throughout the world in 2014, with up to 30 of lowgrade iron mines shut down in China in 2014 alone.

A shortened version of the chapter by Richard Hewer and Alen McFadzean in Lakelands Mining Heritage. The iron industry has slowly matured within the Lake Counties for centuries, with industrial growth spreading from the small bloomery and forge sites, coastal plateau workings and the narrow veins of the fells to the huge mining and iron smelting complexes of the late 19th and 20th centuries.

A loaded Cornwall Railroad ore train is leaving Burd Coleman bound for Lebanon in the mid 195039s behind 122 an SW7. In 1972, Hurricane Agnes stalled over central Pennsylvania and flooded the ore mines. After over 230 years of mining there was simply not enough ore to justify draining the mine shafts to recover what little was remaining.
There were various attempts to mine ironstone in the early nineteenth century, with ore being quarried on the coastal outcrops. The Pecten seam was discovered at Grosmont during the making of a cutting for the Whitby and Pickering Railway and the newly formed Whitby Stone Company sent a cargo of ironstone to the Birtley Iron Company in 1836.
Ironstone is rock containing iron ore. There are rich seams of ironstone in the Cleveland Hills extending out to the coast ironstone rocks were collected from beaches on a small scale but in the mid19th Century mining of ironstone began. The first large scale ironstone mine in Cleveland was opened at Skinningrove on 7th August 1848, producing ironstone for shipment by sea to Bolckow and
