Hurst is a secluded hamlet in North Yorkshire, England about ten miles north-west of Richmond.[1] It lies on a road which it shares with another hamlet, Washfold. Hurst was a mining centre in the 19th century,[2] but there is evidence that the Romans also produced lead here.

Hurst, the chimney on the left is part of the disused 19th century lead smelting complex
