This is a very good site. Staff are very welcoming and well informed. Learnt a lot about the Cornish tin mining industry. Go across the road to the other engine house with a working engine. Not steam powered unfortunately.

Although small by National Trust standards, East Pool Mine, gives an invaluable in understanding Cornwall’s copper and tin mining and industrial archaeology.
