SH7877 : Detail on the derrick

taken 10 years ago, near to Gyffin, Conwy, Great Britain

Detail on the derrick
Detail on the derrick
The warning sign on the hand operated derrick states that 5 tons is the maximum working load. Even with the reduction gearing I imagine it would have been hard manual work lifting that amount of weight. See also SH7877 : Derrick mechanism near Conwy castle. The towers of Conwy castle are in the background - and a seagull.
