Newland Blast Furnace (Blacking Mill only), Egton with Newland / Mansriggs - South Lakeland

Built 1799 as a water-powered rolling mill associated with Newland Furnace, became a blacking mill and, by 1913, a sawmill. Has been in a deteriorating condition for many years. Consents in place for consolidation of and conversion of the ruins of the mill, and work is under way. Rest of the scheduled monument in good condition following repairs by Newland Furnace Trust.
