Lingdale in Newspapers; 1871-1881

The village of Lingdale was established in the 1870s when an Ironstone Mine was sunk nearby and accommodation was urgently needed for its expanding workforce. People seeking work had travelled from far and wide in an era often recalled as the Cleveland Klondike. Transient workers passed through but many other people set down roots within the shadow of the mine, forming a community and Lingdale was born.

The following articles have been extracted from local and national newspapers for the period 1871 to 1881. They illustrate the many trials and tribulations of its earliest settlers.

Researched and transcribed by John Knaggs, December 2021.
