Wheal Betsy

Wheal Betsy
The most recent mining history at Wheal Betsy dates from 1806 with this enginehouse being erected for the Cornish pumping engine in 1868. The engine didn't work here for long as the mine closed in 1877. The mine worked lead, silver and copper.

Not unlike structures I've seen in Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor. It still looks quite intact, I guess it must've been restored, no?

I think the National Trust have undertaken conservation of the structure.

Attractive industrial structure, I like the slightly bendy chimney! Nice colour tones and textures in this.
