Hi Diggory

Moira Furnace was a coke-fuelled, steam-engine blown blast furnace for the smelting of iron from local iron ore, with an attached foundry for the manufacture of cast-iron goods...

The link that I had previously given for information concerning the furnace has changed, and so I have updated to a better one here

Best wishes Peter
