A side door on the rear of the castle that let guests out into a small stone courtyard below a tall turret.
I wanted to see the third floor to get a better view, but the third floor had already been demolished. The old walls had cascaded down the staircases. This building is gone, now, as you can expect.
The floor in this building (now demolished) was very rotten. This picture was taken through a window from very firm ground.
A screened water wheel, presumably for rotating the dredge once it lowered its “foot” to pivot in place.
In what has turned into a kind of industrial courtyard between four ovens some people have posted their tags. X was here.
The coke plant looked more natural through a grimy window.
Modern ruins of the Gilman-Belden tram…
Since this picture was taken, the roof has totally collapsed in this area.
I had to search the shelves a while to find this old logbook. The open page lists changes in stock numbers for Cutler Hammer Coils, and one row says that a new coil was installed on the black larry. The larry is the machine that loads coke ovens.
