Hiya Charlotte ,i have been at the Astley Green Mine all day,we have been connecting two big compressers.The winding engine ,the biggest in the country ,will we hope be ready to run in April,it will then run using compressed air instead of steam.You took a good picture here of a sheave,the pully that the steel rope passed over on its way down the mine shaft.

Well done, Charlotte, both for a great image and also for Volenteering to help in preserving the heritage of the Wigan/ Lancashire Coal Mines for others Smile Love the colour and detail especially the shadow of the wheel ( or sheave as 'Grandad' explained to us ) Fantastic image, look forward to many more Smile
Take care and enjoy, Pauline
