Colliery engine house at Washington F Pit, Albany

  • Description

    "...The Washington F Pit engine house survives particularly well and represents a remarkable example of the winding technology employed within the North East Coalfield in the first half of the 20th century.... In general, colliery engines seldom survive in situ, and few examples, of which the monument is a particularly good one, are maintained in full working condition. This affords a valuable opportunity to study colliery steam engine technology of the 19th and early 20th centuries...."
