I bet Winder can name the pit in the photo!

I bet he can! All tree's this area now and the marker only visable in winter.

Indeed! The shaft in question, for those who don't know, is the Brock Mill pit.
That old horse drawn cart in the shot has been there, pardon the pun, Donkeys Years.
How are you keeping, Andy?
