The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.
The Alum works were short lived only lasting seven years from 1765 to 1771 . Ironstone Mining also occurred in this area from 1909 to 1929 and is indicated on the OS map as Ayton Banks Mines (disused)
