Haig Colliery

High on the cliffs overlooking the Irish Sea, a Giesl ejector fitted WD 0-6-0ST, probably Revenge, busies itself with loaded 21T coal hopper wagons. This was quite a setting for a coal mine and many of its workings were under the sea. The colliery is now partly preserved as a mining museum.
