Unknown shaft

Shaft names are difficult in this area but it's possible this one housed a small steam-jet-type pump in the final years of the mine.

  • That is Wheal Fire shaft, later fitted with a headgear/winder, plinths of which are still there. This may be the boarded "kibble shaft" open in the 60's
