Let's Roll

Let's Roll by dcclark

A doorway leading into the Centennial #6 shaft house.

The beams overhead (through the door) were used to help move heavy skips (metal boxes for moving rock or people) on and off of the "skip road", heading down into the shaft. The shaft is just below them, behind the fence. There is also a rather dodgy wooden flooring area just in front of the fence, leading into a sump.

These buildings were, for a long time, used as a hangout for local kids. There is graffiti everywhere, and a lot of broken glass. More recently, the shaft house has been used to store wood chips for a furnace!
