Taylor's Shaft pumping engine house
Taylor's Shaft pumping engine house, taken 5 years ago
Seen through the ruins of the boiler house for the pumping engine on a wet and windy day in June. The weather boarded red structure is a modern addition housing a lift for disabled access at this National Trust property. The 90" cylinder non-rotative 'Cornish' beam engine was built in 1892 by Harvey & Co of Hayle and was installed in this new engine house by 1924. It ceased work in 1954 and had been purchased while still working by the Cornish Engines Preservation Society with a donation from Mr Greville Bath of Florida.
