Industrial remains at Hanging Houghton

As I wrote the other day, Hanging Houghton used to sit in an industrial landscape.

The old Market Harborough to Northampton railway, now the Brampton Valley Way and part of a national network of cycle paths, is easy to find at the bottom of the hill.

As for relics of the ironstone tramways and aerial ropeway, the best candidate I could find was the concreted lane leading to a minor water treatment plant.
