Moorsholm Docks

Right on the High Street of this delightful little village that just missed out on the ironstone mining activities of the rest of East Cleveland, is a row of six sunken sandstone water troughs that have become known as the Moorsholm Docks. Probably dating from the 19th-century they are fed by piped water from a spring on the moors. The name seems to be a bit of a mystery; some suggest it came about purely as a result of a ‘wag’.
