Site of pumping engine at Muxton Bridge colliery, Lilleshall and Donnington - Telford and Wrekin (UA)

The monument is situated in Granville Country Park near Telford. It includes the standing, buried and earthwork remains of a site which formerly housed a rotative beam pumping engine, used for draining coal workings at Muxton Bridge colliery. The condition of the engine house is deteriorating with loose joints in the brickwork causing bricks to become dislodged. Remedial action has been agreed in principle but a timetable for implementation of repairs has not yet been agreed with Telford and Wrekin Council.
