Remnants of the Overheard Flume of the Waterwheel

Photograph of the waterwheel gearing

This is a close-up showing the remains of the flume for the overshot feed from the adit. A tall support structure is lying on the bank just right of centre stretching from the axle to the top of the picture; and a section of the flume can be seen behind the axle. It is taken from a picture postcard dating from about 1900.
