Photo comment By Robert Cornthwaite: My Father, Bill Cornthwaite worked here in the years prior to WW2. I remember watching the iron running into the moulds from the cauldron, quite some heat was produced!The work looked very dangerous, HSE would have a fit!
Photo comment By Bob Cornthwaite: My Father worked at the Ironworks prior to WWII. I remember as a schoolboy watching the smelted iron being poured into the moulds forming 'pig iron'.
