Wheal Coates
Wheal Coates
This is Towanroath shaft pumping engine house, constructed 1872, one of three at the Wheal Coates former tin mine. It was used to house an engine that pumped water from the adjacent 600 feet deep shaft. The chimney and some of the building has been restored by the National Trust to indicate what it would have looked like. It is impressively situated above the coastal cliffs and the adits that it served went under the sea. It is also impressively situated exactly on the grid line.
