September 2019 Picture of the Month

The single cylinder Winding Engine and its Engineman at the colliery in Blists Hill Victorian Town. While the adjacent mine shaft is original to the site, the engine, dating from the early 1870s, was moved the short distance to the site from Milburgh Tileries near Jackfield. Coal, clay and iron ore were brought up the shaft and supplied to the adjacent tile works, iron foundry, and other industrial sites nearby.
