  A high definition photograph of the Coal Washery at Blundells Collieries in Pemberton in 1935.
In the early 1970's the only thing remaining on the site was the concrete cone and I remember looking up inside of the cone, from inside of the base of the structure.

Ace picture Tommy. Looked up inside that cone many times during the early 60s, when all around had been demolished or left to rot.
