The remaining structures here include two concrete headframes and three engine houses. The tall building to the left is one of these, and the stone building just visible to the right is a second. This has been extended in brick as a private dwelling, but originally would have housed a beam engine, probably for pumping purposes. The brick building in the middle is the third engine house which appears to have housed a replacement winding engine for the nearer beam engine, working the concrete headframe just visible. This is connected to the old engine house, but at an angle so that there is a straight draw to the pulley from the new engine house.
