Cable way for the Baryte mines at Glencarbury
''The wire rope was made of one continuous length. Weather conditions affected it. It was woven with an anti twist property. The rope way was 50-100 feet above the ground in some places, and only 5-10 feet above the ground in others. If a load came off it had to go straight back on because the rope had to be balanced. It was a hell of a journey to the bottom''
