What is the (british) english term for the wheel part of the mining shaft infrastructure?

I dived into the tagging of objects of mining infrastructure that can commonly be seen on village greens or village entrances in former mining areas, because I live in one - and I’ve seen these objects often but did not map them. I will change that.

What is a good term for that part (not the bicycle in front :slight_smile: ):

In German it’s called “Seilscheibe” and the english version of the website of the Deutsches Bergbaumuseum is using “pulley” for this.

I would like to tag it with

Ideas how to tag it better?
