Moor Than Meets The Eye (MTMTE) link

Murray Oates - Tinners' Huts

Phil Newman began the Tinners' Hut project. It was continued by Bob Bruce and then by Nigel Heath. Unfortunately the surveys and reports, completed by various DTRG members, haven't been made available for the website.
The work presented here is from my personal research.

I have combined information from various sources. The map shows the relationship of Tinners' Huts to streamworks. I've categorized the tinners' huts into 4 types. An artistic rather than archaeological interpretation.

It may be that some of the tinners huts were used for other purposes - such as shelters for cowherds.

Please note: On the info pop-ups substitute the leading 2 & 0 with SX to get the OS grid. ref.
