Iron Mining Companies

Many iron mining companies, individuals and organisations have operated in the Lindal and Marton area over the last five or six centuries, including the monks of Furness Abbey. Many of the mines changed ownership several times during their lives. This page lists some of the companies involved in extracting iron ore in the Furness area during the 19th & 20th centuries. The majority of these were active in the area of Lindal and Marton.
