I spent a few hours walking around some of the old mining ruins at Minnions, near Caradon Hill, on Bodmin Moor, which is part of a World Heritage Site for Cornish Mining. I intend to return again ,because there are many old Engine Houses and buildings there, and I think they will make some nice landscapes. In this shot are the remains of Wheal Jenkin, with its Engine House and separate chimney, A steam engine being erected here in October 1836 and the mine worked until 1890. There are many articles about the mining industry here, on the internet, if anyone is interested.
There is a visitor centre at the village of Minnions , which was built to house the miners, which illustrates the area and its numerous mines. This has recently been updated and is housed in the restored Housemans Engine House of the former South Phoenix Mine.
