No.2, The Engine House


Engine house, now house. Circa 1790 with later additions and alterations. Uncoursed limestone rubble with reddish-brown brick patching, plain tile roof. Square-plan. 3 levels; late C20 casements to first and third levels, former with mid-C19 segmental head and latter in round-arched recess. Interior: no machinery survives but in its working days it housed a Newcomen engine, said to be one of only 2 in the county. Coal mining ceased here in 1820s and the building was then converted to domestic use, the former boiler house to west becoming a blacksmith's shop; this and another outbuilding to east were demolished in 1979 when renovation took place and single-storey additions (not included) were made to either side.
