Claughton Brickworks Ropeway
This is the last aerial ropeway in operation in Britain. Clay for brickmaking is brought down from the quarry on Caton Moor to the Hanson owned Claughton Manor Brickworks in the Lune Valley near Lancaster. The main road which is crossed is the A683. The brickworks closed due to the economic downturn in April 2010 but reopened, along with the ropeway in early 2014, Also included in this set are some photos of the other ropeway which was abandoned in 2005.
