Bole Hill Plantation view to south

Bole Hill Plantation view to south 

Limb Valley Bole Hill lead smelting site

A view from the high and exposed western extremity of Bole Hill Plantation looking south over the Limb Valley and the coniferous Rough Standhills Plantation. On the skyline just left of centre is the higher ground of Totley Moor, which has its own 'Bole Hill' (see note).

There are many 'Bole Hills' in Sheffield and along the west-facing sandstone and gritstone escarpments of the Eastern Edges. Their elevated locations were ideal for wind-blown furnaces ('boles') for smelting lead ore which was brought in by pack-horses from the Peak District mines further to the west.
