Low Wood Housing Complex as it is today

Low Wood (or Lowwood) is part of Haverthwaite and the hamlet rests along side the Leven where once was made Iron and Gunpowder. The buildings that for the old gunpowder works can still be seen and what was the workers cottages are now residential houses which are part of an estate. Some of the Iron Masters (the Wilkinson's) went on to build Iron Bridge at Coalbrookdale and the first Iron Ship. Clicking the Iron Bridge link will open a new window to their website.
