    Enjoyed this lil walk out wet and sludgy but well worth it, couldn't believe this was just around the corner from where I live, I also Couldn't get access to the inside as I thought if I climbed in I wouldn't of gotten back out,:mrgreen: and due to the size and the many windows around I got some alright shots anyway.

    History
    ""
    Dating from between 1855 and 1875, this Scheduled Ancient Monument, is an unusually large and rare form of engine house. It is the last remaining building from the Plumbley Collieries and provides valuable evidence of the layout and operation of a 19th century coal mine.

    Why is it called Seldom Seen? One suggestion is that because it lies hidden in the bottom of the valley it was 'Seldom Seen'. Another suggestion is that it was believed to be haunted, but the ghost was seldom seen.

    We have completed some restoration to the building to ensure the structure's continued survival.
