The Lords Cupola

The Lords Cupola

This picture is of the Lords Cupola. It stood on the site of the offices currently occupied by Hargreaves Roadstone Ltd in Stoney Middleton Dale. It is close to The Rock Mill Business Park site on the west side of the village heading towards Tideswell.

The tall chimney provided the draft to create a high temperature in the domed hearth, here the lead ore was blasted with heat from the fire drawn over the dome melting the lead from the ore.
