Roachburn Colliery, Farlam - Carlisle

Colliery built in 1895. The stone-built generating house and pumping house are both roofless. The walls are affected by substantial cracks, rotting of timber lintels and imminent partial collapse. The pumping house is infested with vegetation which is causing bulging, particularly in the exposed wall tops.
