Something you cannot fail to see if you come to Cornwall are the many disused engine houses dotting the landscape. They are not unique to Cornwall as Devon also used to have them, but there are fewer surviving engine houses in Devon.
If you have ever visited Cornwall, or if you have watched Poldark, then you will be aware that the county is littered with the remains of abandoned engine houses and chimney stacks. It would be remiss of me not to show some of these, though I didn’t venture down the one open to the public (Geevor Mine above) as I suffer from mild claustrophobia and can’t stand being in the dark.
