A stamp on the landscape

By Arvorphoto    
A rework of a black and white image from last year.

The remains of Wheal Jenkin Stamps Engine House which would drive the stamps to crush the ore with the embankment of the Liskeard and Caradon mineral railway passing in front which was built to convey the ores of copper and tin along with granite from the Caradon mining district to connect initially with the Liskeard and Looe Canal and later the Liskeard and Looe Railway.

Also noted as the Kilmar Junction Railway as seen in 2019. This was the extension approaching Minions village (or also known as Cheesewring Railway) from Tokenbury Corner that also served the Marke Valley mines and helped avoid the Gonamena Incline on the original route.

Processing: Lightroom/Photoshop

Quite amazing that so much of the trackbed still exists. It closed in 1917.
