Saltom Pithead (Scheduled Monument)

Saltom Pithead is a group of engine houses built in the 18th century near Whitehaven, Cumbria. The engine houses were part of one of the most innovative mines in the UK.

S&CC issued a report evaluating the recent ground movement at the site which had caused the cap for the mine shaft to crack. S&CC had concluded that it was more of a necessity that the adjacent sea wall was consolidated rather than the building itself.
