6/41 Chimney and attached
- boiler house at
Caphouse Colliery.


Chimney and attached boiler house. Probably circa 1876. Stone chimney with
later brick upper section. Later brick boiler house with asbestos roof. The
square chimney tapers but the upper section is straight-sided and is
supported by iron straps. The boiler house is on 2 levels and contains 2
cylindrical Lancashire boilers encased in brickwork. A later hopper feed and
chain-grate system has been added at the opposite end to the chimney. The
boilers powered the winding engine immediately to the south (q.v.). The mine
was owned at that time by the Lister Kaye family of Denby Grange but was
declared bankrupt in 1914, and a new company took over in 1917.
