Boilers at Cardowan Colliery
Boilers at Cardowan Colliery
Cardowan was still hard at work then and using two steam winding engines. One is now at Summerlee. This is a typical colliery boiler house with Lancashire boilers. The firing aisle is in the roofed building on the left but the boiler tops are in the open air with brick enclosed lagging over the tops. This was once a common sight but was becoming rare by 1982 and is now largely a memory. I got good photos here in 1982 and 1983. It's all gone now.
