150 years ago many parts of the North York Moors looked very different to the present day as a short but intense period of ironstone mining and railway construction left a huge impact on the landscape and its communities. The Exploited Land of Iron project will tell the fascinating story of this trailblazing period of industrial growth and exploitation. FREE to members of the Friends, non-members welcome, (please telephone the museum for membership or price details).
