SE0862 : Shack Shaft

taken 2 months ago, 3 km from Greenhow, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Shack Shaft
Shack Shaft
The most northerly shaft of the Burhill Mines, dug onto the North Vein Cross Cut and Hardy's Vein sometime in the mid 19thC, it is quite a large shaft, and may have had a horse engine, like a whim or a wham to lift out the ore.
The bright white in the distance, is the crushed limestone carpark at Stump Cross Caverns.
