Built in 1711 in Backbarrow by Isaac Wilkinson, and developed by his son John Wilkinson. This furnace was fuelled by charcoal and was the first of it's kind in the UK.

Backbarrow ironworks was in operation for more than 250 years. When work ceased in 1967 it fell into disrepair. The main products of the ironworks which was established in 1711 were gun carriages, cannons and cannon balls.

Iron ore was from Low Furness would arrive at the quays in Haverthwaite and then be transported to Backbarrow by horse and cart. The old furnace is believed to be the only remaining example of it's type. A large proportion of the site has been declared a Scheduled Ancient Monument and is one of the most at-risk industrial plots in England until its development which was completed in 2020.
