North Shaft mine at Pitchcroft.

North Shaft mine at Pitchcroft. This shaft was sunk approximately 94 ft deep for extracting limestone and was constructed after the coming of the railway (1848). There was a tall chimney close by which might point to the existence of an engine and boiler house for pumping or winding. What remains of the shaft is in the fenced off area right.
