New Roskear Mine, Camborne
New Roskear Mine, Camborne
This was latterly an alternative access for South Crofty and closed with that mine. The derelict winding engine house contained the incomplete remains (just visible through the doorway) of a duplex steam winding engine. Built 1897 and moved here in 1924. In 2005 the remains were removed to South Crofty as part of a World heritage bid project. I have no idea what this site now looks like.
