What’s this then?


I spotted a disused loader of some sort in a field. I didn’t know what it was so I rode over for a closer look. I’m really starting to like the fact I can just ride anywhere, the mighty KLR650 just doesn’t seem to care.

On closer inspection I still couldn’t work out what this thing was. There seems to be a mechanism to raise something out of the ground, and there are three different hatches or chutes that can be opened to load whatever is parked underneath.

But with no other infrastructure around, I’ve no idea what would be loaded. The bottom of the shaft didn’t appear to go very deep either, so I’m at a loss. Any ideas?

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!

  1. Where exactly is this ? it may have been a working mine, google will no doubt lead to the history if in fact it was.
