The 1904 Ordnance Survey map labels the word 'Shaft' near a small square feature and a pair of parallel lines. It is assumed the parallel lines are the end of the incline tramway and the small square feature may be a shaft of unknown depth. This may be associated with the pumping of water from King's Shaft to supply the reservoir at the other end of the incline tramway. There are no visible remains of a shaft at this location however. Other details: Figures 10, 36, site 68.
