SO9588 : Windmill End and Cobb's engine house

taken 30 years ago, near to Rowley Regis, Sandwell, Great Britain

Windmill End and Cobb's engine house.
Windmill End and Cobb's engine house.
Cobb's engine house has been described as "one of the greatest iconic objects in the Black Country" (Paul Collins - Black Country Canals, 2001). The engine is preserved in the Henry Ford Museum, Dearborn, USA.
Judging from another picture the trees have largely obscured the engine house from this area. That's what 20 years of growth does.
