A supplemental I think.
The large object in the foreground is a rare example of a haystack boiler. There is another at the Black Country Museum.
The round object just over its left shoulder (so to speak) is the winding drum from the Donisthorpe Colliery steam winding engine. This is awaiting re-erection. The tandem headgear is a nice survival.
The pit was associated with the Stephensons of railway fame.
The modern museum building is a fine example of the "MFI" school of modern architecture and one day I'll ask reception where the flat pack wardrobes are!
