We take a walk along an old railway track built to transport Iron ore from the metal rich hills here. This imposing stonework is the remains of a series of kilns that were used as a first step in extracting the metal, sothat less spoil was transported out.

History tends to hang around in places like this. I've not seen the word 'spoil' used this way since my early days in construction . . not quite this early, though !

"Imposing" is the right word for it, and mono was also the right call.
