  • Description

    Yesterday we moved the very heavy, and very rare Seaham Harbour Coal Drop! Nearly 40 tons of 1840s wrought iron which has sat in a corner of Beamish for 30 years after originally being saved in 1966. It was a massive (and well planned) operation to move this and the long term plan is to restore this to working condition to demonstrate how it works - for a full writeup and more pictures http://beamishtransport.blogspot.com/2010/06/big-lift-part-1.html" >Click Here.
