Gallows Frame talk page
A bit of tidying up is needed here. The Gallows Frame of this article is the same thing as the Winding tower, which also has other names:
"A winding tower also known as a headframe, poppet head or pit head is a construction from steel or concrete, built over a vertical mine shaft."
Merge with Winding Tower
I completly agree that both Gallow frame and Winding Tower should be merged but there is no consensus as to what the correct term should be. It's difficult to state that Gallows and Winding are regional and headframe is not without references. Please could we have some engineering referenced citations before we decide on the route this page will take. Thanks FruitMonkey (talk) 17:11, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
I have copied and edited the "as an iconic symbol" to this article prior to my conversion of Winding tower to redirect here. Some citations would be nice to have for that section though.--Kelapstick (talk) 19:34, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
