Crookburn Lead Shaft (United Kingdom)


Trial for lead not far from the Middleton to Alston road. Although the shaft is flooded the remains of a wheelpit and pump rods can still be seen.

Addendum
It was sunk by the Crook Burn Mining Company formed in 1879. The pumps shown in the photograph came from Metal Band shaft and were driven by a steam engine, mountings to still be seen.
In 1881 the engine was made to also drive a winding drum.
