These two concrete foundations once held the winding drums at the top of the New Bank Incline.

The drums would have looked very similar to these.

This cutting which is current clear of undergrowth would have contained tracks for the empty wagons coming up the incline.

The full tubs would have descended the incline, hauling up the empties with their extra weight before arriving at the Low Drum in California.

There were two other inclines, Old Bank and Trustee in the system, the remains of all three are still visible but cut by the A174 Parkway.
