The winding houses still stand but the head-gears have gone. The "Arts and Crafts" engine houses held some early electric winding plant with power supplied by the Yorkshire Electric Power Company.

There is more infoprmation in Thornes, R; Images of Industry Coal, published by RCHME in 1994. Well worth a punt. There's also a RCAHMW book on Welsh colliery engineering & architecture.
