Cornish Mines 4.1 – Tolgus Tin, is a museum attached to “Cornish Gold”. It is the site of the last Tin Streaming Works in Cornwall. But it is well worth a visit to see the set of working Cornish Stamps. Tolgus Tin Works

Cornish Mines 4.2 – The remains of the 32″ Stamps Engine House of Tresavean Mine. Located in Lanner this has the distinction of being the second deepest Mine in Cornwall behind Dolcoath. Also it had the first Man Engine in Cornwall which was installed in 1842 by Micheal Loam.

Cornish Mine Images 4.3 – My most favourite site in Cornwall, dramatic and amazing Trewavas Mine. Both the Engine Houses were renovated recently, if left they would have collapsed and been lost.

Cornish Mine Images 4.9 – Wheal Peevor Mine is quite a place, most possibly the best three Engine House survival in Cornwall. Also recently renovated, sadly the site has lost much of its charm. But at least the buildings have received much needed work.
