Taken at the North of England Lead Mining Museum, also known as Killhope, an industrial museum near the village of Cowshill, County Durham, England. The museum stands on the site of the former Park Level Mine, which is being restored to show the workings of a 19th century lead mine. One of the main features of the reconstructed mine is the Killhope Wheel, a 10-metre-diameter metal waterwheel. This was constructed by the Tyneside firm of William Armstrong. Although other waterwheels were used in and around the mine, this was the largest, and the only one to survive the decades of neglect. It has now been restored to full working order.

In the image, I have deliberately left the sky white as I thought it suited the bleached timber and grey stone and the general mood of the scene.

Thanks for all the C&C's on my last upload from the Cotswolds.

Best wishes,
Philip
