Haydon Pit Wheel - a Memory of Radstock.

Every morning from 1968 when my family moved to 2 Grovewood Road, I was woken by the pit wheel and watched it from my bedroom window until its closure 1973. It was in direct view straight up through the first straight of Grovewood. I was aged 5 when we moved there. I still see it so clearly, but a photo would be great (and weird).
