[2024 Series] "The rise and fall of a Lake District Wolfram Mine - Carrock Fell" - 13th March

[2024 Series]

One in a series of evening talks with background notes.

Wednesday evening at 7.00pm via live Zoom.

This mine, the only one in Cumbria to have produced wolfram, has a rich history tied to the fluctuating prices and demands of tungsten.

We'll delve into its intermittent operations since 1854, with a focus on its significant periods during the World Wars, when geopolitical needs dramatically influenced its output.
