Backbarrow Ironworks (unrepaired buildings including Pug Mill, storehouses and manager's house), Haverthwaite, South Lakeland - Lake District (NP)

The surviving structures of Backbarrow Ironworks represent the best illustration nationally of iron-smelting development from the early C18 to C20. The central part of the ironworks has been repaired through a Section 106 Agreement. The wider site has been developed as residential units. Backbarrow Ironworks Heritage Trust continues to prepare for taking on management of the repaired buildings once work is complete and signed off. Certain buildings were not included in the repair scheme and these remain at risk. These include the Pug Mill and ore storehouses on the other side of the road.
