Brompton Regis: Burrow Farm Engine House
Brompton Regis: Burrow Farm Engine House
The engine house was designed by Captain Henry Skewis, a Cornishman, to house a 25 rotary beam engine, which was installed in 1868. It was used for pumping water from the adjoining mine and also for winding purposes. However the ore proved elusive and the mine closed in 1869; a new shaft was sunk 400 yards to the east but this later endeavour ceased in 1883. This engine house is the last surviving of its type on the Brendon Hills and the structure was consolidated in 1990. It stands close to the West Somerset Mineral Railway formation, which today provides public access to this point
