User-Submitted Notes

Built 1749 by the Newland Company which later became Harrison Ainslie. The company owned 5 charcoal blast furnaces in the 19th century (Duddon, Newland, Backbarrow, Lorn and Warsash) and held a monopoly of charcoal iron manufacture in Britain for most of this time.
Converted to hot blast 1873. Closed 1891.
Maintained by Newland Furnace Trust. Open by appointment and on Herritage open days.
