The square building Josie, is a ventilation shaft for the California pit. The deep pit is to the left, the two cars parked will almost certainly be fishermens vehicles. Another pit building vent now capped, was next to the iron bridge railway line. At the back of the trees is Hindley Hall Golf club.
