Wheal Coates Tin Mine, Cornwall

Wheal Coates Tin Mine, Cornwall

The Wheal Coates mine opened in 1802 and was worked until its closure in 1889. It was re-opened for a short period between 1911 and 1913 when it was finally closed. The site is most notable for its three engine houses and in particular the iconic Towanroath Shaft engine house, which is now a Grade II listed building. The whole site is in the care of the National Trust.

My first photographic trip to Cornwall was in June 2011, sadly it was hampered by bad weather and this shot was the only one I really came away with. I particularly like the pink heather and rolling waves, crashing on the shore.
