Electricity substation
Electricity substation
These two buildings in the middle of nowhere appear on the 1940's OS map. The one in the background is now used for commercial vehicle repairs... but what was its original use?

On the 1919-1926 map old mine workings are indicated, ie shafts. On the 1894-1899 maps, nothing is there. It would appear that the building must have had some association with mine working. For a bit more information see the link LinkExternal link and scroll down to 21st entry, (Shafts).
