Winding engine house on site of
Grenville United Mine
Winding engine house (or "whim") to former tin mine, now derelict.
Probably late C19. Slobbered killas rubble with granite quoins, bob wall of
granite blocks, window arches and upper stage of chimney of polychrome
brick. Rectangular plan on east-west axis, with bob wall to east,
foundations of former winding drum in front of this, and circular chimney
attached at south-west corner. Smaller building than the associated pump
engine house, with round-headed openings including driver's window in bob
wall (wall beneath this collapsed) and small cylinder door in rear wall.
Vertical tie-plateat west corner of north side. Intact tapered cylindrical 2-
stage chimney with a cornice. Foundations of winding drum partly
dilapidated. Functional partner to pump engine house approx. 50 metres to
the north-east (q.v.), forming an interesting group on a conspicuous site
close to the road. One of a series of mines exploiting the Great Flat Lode.
