Mount Wellington Mine Gallery 1. So this is the first new gallery page of Mount Wellington Mine. There are new images that were reprinted during 2016/17.
I visited the derelict site many times during the 1990’s. It was an extraordinary place with an atmosphere of its own. I used to just wander around and soak in the memories that the place held. It seemed to me at the time that it was full of ghosts and secrets.
Even when Dave and I were there together it seemed almost wrong that we should do anything but look. I wish I had taken so many more photographs, but I just wanted to wander around and have a look. I have printed all the negatives that I can, this is all I have. Please enjoy this page of the Mount Wellington Mine Galleries.
So, the headframe was a wonderful thing to see, I could never have got bored with taking photographs of it.
The foundations for the Winder House can be seen clearly. Also the two pits where the drums were mounted are in line with the sheave wheels on top of the headframe. It was very sad the Winder House had been removed, seemed very strange when all the other buildings were left.
