Scope and Content Workers' dwellings ('H') at Bonawe Ironworks, Bonawe, Strathclyde Bonawe Ironworks on the shore of Loch Etive was founded in 1752-3 by Richard Ford and Company as an offshoot of their works at Furness in England. It exploited local wood for smelting iron ore brought via the loch from Lancashire and Cumberland. These workers' dwellings to the south east of the furnace are some of the buildings, including a school and a church, erected by the company to create a self-contained industrial community around the works. In the 18th century, the timber supply attracted several iron companies to Scotland, including an Irish co-partnership at Glen Kinglass, and two English companies from Furness at Craleckan and at Bonawe - now the best-preserved site.
