Charcoal Man Sculpture:
This beautiful sculpture sits in the woods near High Dam, close to Finsthwaite in Cumbria.
The charcoal man sculpture commemorates the charcoal burning industry carried out in the wood since the building of Furness Abbey in the 12th century.
Charcoal was a vital component in the iron smelting process.
The sculpture sits within the remains of a bark peelers hut.
Bark, particularly oak, has been used for centuries in leather tanning.
Bark peelers constructed tepee like huts on a circular stone wall with a chimney at the back.
