Winding Engine House,
Winding Engine house. c.1860. Roughly coursed dressed limestone with hammer-dressed architraves and quoins; gabled corrugated iron roof. Rectangular plan. Two storeys. Bob wall in gable end has corrugated iron panel to opening, and keyed semi-circular arch to basement level. Return and rear elevations have keyed semi-circular arched openings above similar arched openings to basement level. INTERIOR not inspected. The site was producing coal by 1799, and this building is associated with an expansion of operations when the Mackintosh shaft was sunk and opened in 1867. Cornish pumping engines dominated 19th century collieries. This is the best surviving example of an engine house from the Mendip area coalfields, and is important in a national context as a survivor from the coal industry.
