Coal Winding Shaft

Don't know much about this preserved winding shaft, but appears to be quite small bore. I think I read it was about 600' to the bottom but don't quote me. Taken on black and white 120 roll film.

Further Information from Digit: Apparently it is likely this shaft also wound clay and ironstone at times, so shouldn't be strictly referred to as simply a coal shaft. The timber work is actually quite new here as it had been recently renewed.

  • I got copped climbing over the fence to peer down the shaft last time I was there!! They were very good about it and opened up the traps for me to have a proper look! Nice photo. (sinker)
