Front of interpretation board

Beyond is the high mound shown on the right, but I have doubts about it being a spoil tip. There is a shaft on the left of it, and another on the right of the track beyond, but logically spoil would have been dumped down slope of the shaft, it would have needed a very high headframe and tramway to match the height of the supposed tip.

I doubt very much that the board gives any kind of accurate representation of the mine.
