Sun and Moon Chapel
A late 17th century chapel known for its finely painted ceiling. The chapel, dedicated to the Holy Trinity 1673.
The most interesting feature is the ceiling, painted as a celestial firmament, with angels, doves, cherubs, and other allegorical symbols mixed amid symbols of the sun, moon, and stars. There are carved and painted wooden cherubs attached to the wall panelling. A royal coat of arms of Charles II is set upon the south wall

Apse Windows
The apse is the semicircular or polygonal termination to the choir or aisles of a church. In relation to church architecture it is generally the name given to where the altar is placed or where the clergy are seated, The domed apse became a standard part of the church plan in the early Christian era

Mine Wheel
Minera Lead Mines Wrexham, Wales UK
The first written record of the lead miners of Minera dates from 1296. The mine became a success story in the 18th century. Between 1761 and 1781, the city companies as owners of the mineral rights received nearly 13,000 in royalties.
The mine flourished again after 1849. The Minera Mining Company invested in a new pumping engine in 1857. A year later they installed a new winding engine to raise the lead ore and to work the mechanical ore crusher. Soon after the company built new ore bins, dressing floors for sorting the lead from the waste and the ore house for drying, weighing and sampling the lead ready for sale. All this equipment enabled miners to mine ore from the deepest veins in Minera, up to 400 metres below the surface.
In 1884 a new dressing floor was opened at Roy’s Shaft with all the latest machinery. The Meadow Shaft site became a dumping ground. Gradually the dressing floors were buried. Only the actual Meadow Shaft remained in use and it closed in 1914.
The Incline
A cable railway also known as an incline or inclined plane is a steeply graded railway that uses a cable or rope wound about a cable winch system similar to a ski lift mechanism powered by a stationary engine to haul trains on adversely steep grades.
The Tank incline, a variation of the gravity balance incline was the “tank” incline found at several quarries in north Wales, These were worked by gravity, but instead of the wagons running on their own wheels, permanently attached angled wagons were used that had a horizontal platform on which the cargo-carrying wagons rode. Despite their name, these inclines were not a form of water balance incline

Exploration Obelisk Bristol, UK
Four sided obelisk is surmounted with a steel armillary sphere made by master blacksmith James Blunt, the whole sculpture standing about 18 feet high. Commissioned by Standard Life Assurance, it was intended to celebrate the mariners who departed from Redcliffe Quay in the 15th and 16th centuries to explore the New World. Men believed at that time that the Unknown deep was occupied by strange and frightening monsters. It was thought by mediaeval men that every animal from the land had a parallel under the Sea. The animals, often half fish, half beast, were based on those which appear in a great contemporary book found in the Chain Library of Wells cathedral. The creatures were modelled up in buff and terracotta clays. After glazing the pieces were embedded into polyester panels with stones and pebbles forming the background. The four panels were then screwed back to a stainless steel framework, and the armillary sphere fixed to the top.

The structure is 443 feet (135 m) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 394 feet (120 m). When erected in 1999 it was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.
