The site is still mainly intact and much of the buildings remain that housed the equipment and winding gear, though in a varying stare of repair. Two shaft heads are built almost right next to each other with one housing the fan house and the other being the downcast shaft. In later years the upcast shaft was extended as can be seen with the change of bricks nearing the top of the shaft. The downcast shaft is situated to the other side of the late winding house and may have been served by an electric winch from the upcast winding house. The original stream engine house remains at the side of the upcast shaft but was likely replaced in later years with the addition of electricity to the site.

The site is on private property and we had to gain permission to visit from the land owner.
