The headgear on the L is for the West Shaft sunk 20C-?Q2 to use as a ventilation upcast.

The headgear on the R is for the Lodge Pit shaft sunk Jan 8th1840 - Jun 28th 1841 to 470 ft / 143.23 m just below the Busty Bank seam [1]

I have fond memories of a visit to Marley Hill in the mid 70s. I went to see a plough face supported with props and bars - the seam was too thin for powered supports. Riding out of the mine was a unique experience, we were accompanied in the cage by a pony who was keen to check our pockets for apples. IP: 86.154.200.60
