Cornish Mines 3, for the moment this is the final introduction page for the individual mine site I have photographed. In time as more pages appear these will grow. Once again follow the links or click on the image to navigate to that page.
Cornish Mines 3: The Tolgus Calciner
Cornish Mines Link 1; The Tolgus Calciner which is situated along the Old Portreath Road. This image was taken in the 1990’s. The condition has suffered a lot since then.
Cornish Mines 3: Tolgus Tin Works
Cornish Mines Link 2; Tolgus Tin, is a museum attached to “Cornish Gold”. It is the site of the last Tin Streaming Works in Cornwall. Well worth a visit to see the set of working Cornish Stamps. Tolgus Tin Works
Cornish Mines 3: Trewavas Head Mine
Cornish Mines Link 3; My most favorite site in Cornwall, dramatic and amazing Trewavas Head Mine. Both the Engine Houses were renovated recently, both if left would have collapsed and been lost.
Cornish Mines 3: Wheal Coates Mine
Cornish Mines Link 4; Wheal Coates Mine, this image is taken from the path that leads from Chapel Porth, a great walk with amazing views.
Cornish Mines 3: Wheal Peevor Mine
Cornish Mines Link 5; Wheal Peevor Mine is quite a place, possibly the best three Engine House survival in Cornwall. Recently renovated, the site has lost much of its charm, but at least the buildings have received much needed work.
