Cornish Mine Images 2.1 – This image is of Ishmael’s Whim Engine House at Ding Dong Mine. It is certainly one of my favorites. Located in the middle of nowhere on a desolate moor with only the wind to keep you company.

Cornish Mines 2.2 – This is the well preserved New East Shaft Engine House on Dolcoath Mine. However, for such an important mine there so are few remains to be seen today. As a result, only one other Engine House survives intact.

Cornish Mines 2.3 – Originally sited at Harriet’s Shaft Dolcoath this winder was moved to the New Roskear Shaft for an attempted reopening of the mine during the 1920’s. Consequently, it sat there for several decades. However, in recent years it was returned to its original mounting blocks, sadly most of the engine itself was lost.
