HRS 1349 Coniston Copper Mines, Bonsor Works, slag 2010

'The copper ore was smelted at the Low Mill site 200 yards south of the present day Youth Hostel about 1895, but the smelt mill was destroyed by a high wind in that year. It is still possible to find cones of slag in the locality, and the wire-like pieces of copper suggest by their texture that the smelting process was incomplete or inefficient." M Davies-Shiel & JD Marshall "Industrial Archaeology of the Lake Counties" David & Charles 1969.
