Magpie Mine, Sheldon
This shows all the major features of this disused metalliferous mine. The winding engine chimney is in the foreground with the winding engine house and boiler house to its left. To the right is the Cornish pumping engine house with its chimney. There is a modern (1950s) headgear and winding house in front of the Cornish engine house. When we arrived a couple were picnicking near the Cornish engine house but they subsequently departed leaving the shot clear.
