This is Rookhope Arch, one of what used to be a series of arches making up the mile-and-a-half 'horizontal flue' which took poisonous fumes from Lintzgarth smeltmill across the river to a chimney on Redburn Common. The flue was used to condense the lead-rich fumes. Periodically, a man would be sent up the flue to scrape off the lead deposits. These were then washed down the flue into a tank for recycling (the site of the tank now lies in a lay-by next to the road).

The photograph was taken as part of a short series of test-shots while travelling to Alston with my wife to pick up our car, after I'd completed about half C2C the previous day.
