Goonvean China Clayworks - Cornish beam engine
Goonvean China Clayworks - Cornish beam engine
50" Cornish beam engine of 1863 by Harvey & Co of Hayle. Installed 4th hand in 1910. Dismantled by Century millwrights in September 2008 and placed in store. It is hoped that it may be re-erected in a proposed project in Hayle.

This is a view of the bottom chamber with the driver's position and the cylinder behind on the right. The 'gearwork' is typical three arbor gearwork with a double plug rod and cataracts for pauses on the indoor and outdoor strokes. The engine has a single perpendicular pipe connecting the two ends of the cylinder.
