This is an in situ winch built 1891 by J Wild & Co Ltd, Oldham. It was installed here c1912 and stopped about 1921. It is amazing that as much has survived has did in 1989 when I last saw it. It's well hidden in a wooded area and we started looking at dusk and found it in full darkness with the aid of torches. Amazingly, our party escaped from the woods unscathed.
