Site of Top Dam, Sticks Gill
Site of Top Dam, Sticks Gill
In 1891 a shaft known as Smiths Shaft was sunk at Greenside Mine and operated by electric winding gear at the shaft top. This was the first mine in Britain to do so with electricity initially generated by water coming from Kepple Cove Tarn. The use of electricity was so successful that additional capacity was sought notably Red Tarn but dams were also constructed at Brown Cove and here at Sticks Gill.
