Levant Mine

This morning’s visit was to Levant Mine, a disused but surprisingly complete National Trust property on the coast.

We had an interesting but rather long tour from a guide, mostly about the history, but also the methods used to extract the copper and tin.

There was also a visit to an underground tunnel, but Tina stayed behind to dog sit.

Finally, we had a demonstration of a working steam beam engine that had been restored.

An interesting visit, and quite different from the average NT property!
