Re: Board Topic – Slag Heap…
I spent time here as a kid in the 70,s.The slag is what rises to the surface of a crucible of molton metal which originated from the blast furneses at palmers jarrow,[nothing to do with the bowes coke ovens or coal staithes].The rail line however was used to dump slag from palmers at monkton.Hope this helps.
