Treverbyn: replica inclined plane
Treverbyn: replica inclined plane
Wagons would transport waste sand [or stent], or overburden from a china clay pit to a sky tip on a cable-worked inclined plane. This was usually powered by a waterwheel or steam engine; later by electric motors. Unloading at the incline summit was automatic. The wagon shown is by the 'dog pit' or loading bay in the pit floor. Here the waste would be tipped into the wagon by men manhandling a second wagon on a narrow-gauge line. In Treverbyn parish
