Darkhill Ironworks 2024

The terraces of stone walls are all that remain of the important ironworks where David and Robert Mushet carried out secret experiments with iron and steel during the 19th century. The complex of tramways, brickworks and ironworks lie on the terraces above one another on the hillside. Darkhill Ironworks, and the neighbouring Titanic Steelworks, were where the world's first tungsten steel was produced.
