Hampton Village

Hampton, which meas 'hometown' is described as an 'English' village.
This town grew in size until its 'hey day' in 1866, with 30 miners cottages and a Bible Christian Chapel all made from stone quarried locally.
The people in this town were working class, and some of their occupations included Mine Manager, carpenter, smelter, miner, wheelwright, blacksmith, mason, and mechanic.
