The furnace they used to heat up the boiler for the steam crane at the old mine.
(And the miners probably used it to heat up the mutton pies they got from their old boilers for their tea breaks !!)

They must have liked their furnace, elaborately decorated as it is, even the rust is multicoloured to celebrate the double use.
We used our hardening oven to 'temper' quite a few legs of lamb.. Only the scent gave it away if the boss did the rounds!

A bit of industrial nostalgia courtesy of the Glenfield Co. Ltd., Mick: would probably incinerate their mutton pies, I reckon.
Another good find and captured so well.

Nicely taken, and indeed it is nice to see some craftmanship on such a working piece of metal.
