Evidence of lead mining can be seen in both Swaledale and Arkengarthdale. As well as the mine entrances and shafts, the remains of tramways, smelting chimneys and dressing areas can still be seen on the hillsides. The mines were usually worked on a part-time basis along with a small farm although the mining rights were held by the lords of the manors. When the industry declined in the late-1800s, some parishes inSwaledale lost over 70% of their population. A present-day reminder of the industry can be seen in the CB Hotel above Reeth. The mines in Arkengarthdale and New Forest - Punchard Gill and Faggergill - were bought by Dr. John Bathurst (physician to Oliver Cromwell) in 1656 and were carried on by his son, Theodore, and grandson, Charles, under the name of the C. B. Company (Charles Bathurst).
