Scarred landscape north of Great Pinseat
Scarred landscape north of Great Pinseat
Now used mainly to access the grouse moors to the west, these tracks were both part of an extensive network serving the lead workings on the northeast side of Great Pinseat, on Martin Vein. The removal of blanket peat has left a barren landscape on which grows only a limited range of plants, mainly sedges, and none of the heather that suports the grouse industry on less devastated ground behind the photographer. The left track descends Low Rake towards the Danby Lead Level, whilst to the right, the track skirts the top of a very extensive area of hushes where hydraulic mining removed the overburden.
