East Pool Mine

Beam engines and engine houses as they would have been

East Pool Mine CornwallAt the very heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site sit two great beam engines, originally powered by high-pressure steam boilers introduced by local hero Richard Trevithick.

Preserved in their towering engine houses, they are a reminder of Cornwall's days as a world-famous centre of industry, engineering and innovation. The pumping engine is one of the largest surviving Cornish beam engines in the world, and the restored winding engine can be seen in action daily. With all new displays and a family trail, it’s a great place to discover the whole dramatic story of Cornish mining.
