The Pit Wheel

Friday night I took a bike ride around Herrington Country Park, Sunderland-it's a fab place that I'd never been to, with cycle tracks, ponds, play areas, monuments and great views.

As I was riding around, I came across the Miners' Memorial Garden, and a monument there was a massive pit wheel, presumably from the Herrington coal mine.

Taking out my trusty Nokia N95, I took this picture.

What do you think?

Comments, as always, much appreciated.

It's a very nice picture... and the wheel is huge >_>

Yeah the wheel is huge - and there was another one behind me! There's loads of these around, monuments to the mining era of the area.

Thanks for looking!
