The Iron Mines Caland and Steep Rock around is a place of ingenuity, and beautiful wilderness. The place is most recommended for visiting in the fall, as this is the time is when the fall colours come out. The leaves fall off the trees, creating a beautiful flood of autumn colours on the ground, and a better sightline of the buildings and quarries around.
View at your own pace to see the setting of where iron ore was mined, and harvested from the ground to produce items such as the World War Two Hawker Hurricanes, to toasters, and nails.
The place was well-engineered to create minimal damage which equates to its beautiful surroundings today. With untouched forestry that goes on forever, a place is a place many marvels at. This place lasted until the 1970s until most of the buildings and equipment in the area withered. A lot of where the quarry pits were are now flooded with water, bringing out a nice turquoise colour. The place is an amazing example of what the early onset looked like in the Mining Age and visitors will surely remember it.
Bring proper footwear and exercise caution. Note that shoes can end up coloured in red due to the high iron content in the ground.
