Tregurtha Downs Mine, St Hilary, Cornwall. 1890 Featured St Hilary Print

Tregurtha Downs Mine, St Hilary, Cornwall. 1890

The horses were the main subject of this photograph, but in fact this provides us with an excellent view of part of this mine in the late nineteenth century. From left to right can be seen the count house, mill, stack shaft headgear and engine shaft. The latter is dominated by the house of the 80in pumping engine and associated boiler house and stack. Tregurtha Downs mine or Hampton mine, the set includes Wheal Rodney and Owen Vean Mine and probably also The Gears. The mine closed in 1897. Part of the A.K. Hamilton Jenkin collection. Photographer: Unknown
