Duke Pit, Whitehaven
Duke Pit, Whitehaven
Fan house of 1869-70 that housed a 36' diameter Guibal fan from 1870. A rare survivor. This is the only building on the site. This is high above the harbour and this is visible just behind the left-hand edge. There was an earlier 8' diameter fan of 1836 in a building that was just behind this and is long gone (supplementary information via e-mail).
