#335 – theviewfromthenorth.org Backbarrow Pictures on the BBC

I was approached by the BBC asking for permission to use 6 of my photographs of Backbarrow Ironworks in a story they were doing. Only two were used in the end, better than nowt I guess.

The Ironworks site has been sold and some of the vacant land is going to be used for a holiday village, hopefully the remains of the Ironworks will be restored.

Full set of photos on theviewfromthenorth.org are here.

  1. Congratulations with showcasing your work on BBC. Even if only two photos were used in the end, it must have been encouraging.
