4/4 Sandstone chimney to
former Copper Mine
Mine engine house chimney, early C19. Red hammer dressed sandstone.
Neatly coursed masonry, square on plan. Built in two stages, the
lower one vertical, terminating in a projecting weathered string
course, and the upper section, tapering and finishing with a slightly
projecting narrow band and heavy terminal cresting. The chimney is
all that remains of the building which housed the pumping engine to
drain the copper mine owned by the Egerton family of Oulton. The mine
is said to have already been working in 1697 - Report by Edmund
Spargo, "The Cheshire Copper Mines, Bickerton Hill, Cheshire". Spargo
and Sons 1906.
