The second map is to the west of the count house, and clearly shows the tramway incline up to the West Phoenix section. Remains of West’s Shaft winding engine and Hamilton’s Shaft pumping engine are marked in the bottom part of the extract.


This map shows the valley bordering the sett to the north. The grid type structures are remains of a slime processing works. The long thin structure in the northeast corner is the water wheel casing.


The final map covers the head of West Phoenix incline, with its associated shafts.
