2/75 Clintsfield Colliery Engine House
- II

Colliery pumping engine house, early C19th, later converted into house and
now derelict. Sandstone rubble with remaining roof, over chimney, of stone
slate. Comprises a main block about 25 feet tall, with a lower shed
adjoining on the north side which has a capped chimney projecting from its
western wall. The lower part of the east wall of the main block is of
large rock-faced sandstone blocks. It has a tall doorway with stone
lintel, the upper part blocked with rubble when the building was converted
into a house. The upper part of the wall, below the apex, is of rubble and
has a blocked beam engine opening with round head, now containing a
smaller partly-blocked window. The south wall has 2 window openings with
plain reveals. Under the apex of the west wall is a window with plain
reveals. Inside, there are the remains of 2 floors and a 1st floor
fireplace with plain stone surround. The shed on the north side appears to
be of the same build. Part of its wall, at the north-east corner, has
collapsed. The chimney is about 20 feet high, with rock-faced quoins and
now terminates with a rock-faced coping below a pyramid roof. Probably the
only remaining colliery engine house in Lancashire, it was marked as an
engine house on the 1st edition 6 inch Ordnance Survey map (1847). In 1839
it had an engine of 5 h.p. with boiler and pump. Price, J.W.A., The
industrial Archaeology of the Lune Valley, Lancaster, 1983, pp. 38-39.
