Stumped for this one until I thought of Cornwalls mining heritage, so here goes:

The remains of Crowns mine, Botallack, Cornwall

Linked to One Word Sunday at Debbie’s here


  1. That looks a wonderfully old photo, Sue.

  2. Perfect for the prompt!

  3. Amazing heritage, almost part of the natural landscape now

  4. Great choice, Sue. Those tin mines are a unique part of Cornwall’s heritage.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Now that is a real heritage photo!

  6. A nice choice. But so many of your photos fit the bill!

  7. Perfect. Your photo has captured an important element of Cornwall’s heritage.
    And vaguely connected I heard this week that Bude has the most amazing photographic record of its history since the 1850s due to a local family of photographers, the Thorns.

  8. I remember visiting this a few years ago. Looks more like a castle than a mine to me!

  9. And still one I haven’t visited. On the list though!

    • Sue

      Oh, you have to see it, Jude! Here’s a post which shows the ruins higher above the two engine houses in this post, as well as one you know well (Wheal Coates)

  10. Oh so well done Sue – One wonders how the workers got to the mines for work. Frightening really

  11. That’s a fine view and image, Sue. I have seen many of the Cornish engine houses, but not those, as far as I remember.

  12. Amy

    Great choice, Sue! This image is precious.

  13. The old photo gives it a genuine heritage feel.

  14. wow – that s a great down view – and nice heritage take, Sue
