The grilled Hind's Shaft can be seen here along with two engine houses. The nearest was the pumping shaft which was home to a 70" engine. The winding engine house is visible in the distance.

This is a nice mine site which has been worked for centuries. The last being in 1892 when the pumps were turned off.
