Primary / Secondary References

Plate 38 is an image taken in April 1977 and shows the terrace of 6 cottages in the background.  These are similar to the cottages at Selside - SCRCA structures 244300 and 244350.  Saltlake was the site of a shanty town built by the navvies constructing the line in this area; the name remained in use after the workers left.


Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
