[Pic 7] Cwm Machno Quarry - Mills view (Aug 1982)

The view, from Mills level, of the so called Trwnc incline. The layout of this is clearly visible with the counter weight balance run going all the way up beyond the drumhouse to the raised head. There were several intermediate levels along the main run and the landing stages for these can clearly be seen. Also note the incline dropping down from the same level as the summit of the Trwnc incline and a further incline up the hillside.

Looking down the ramp of the incline (that descends down from the same level as the summit of the Trwnc incline) to its connection with the Trwnc inclines main level landing stage. There is also a clearer view of the sole remaining internal mill and part of the pit, with a possible uphaulage site peaking out of it. Amazingly the two small buildings still remain today but the mill has totally gone.

The left hand view shows the original water wheel pit. This wheel helped power the uphaulage on the incline until replaced by the more complex water balance system. Both views show the lower formation that carried the water balance tank on a lower level at the summit, but raised up by the bottom. The right view (from the summit landing) also shows the tramway run, starting from the incline base, across the pit tips and around to the mills. Note the intermediate landing stages.
