Description

Wheal Ellen

The road south from Porthtowan to Scorrier passes through the magnificent Tywarnhayle Valley, the scene of much copper mining during the 1800s. The sides of the valley to this day are a rust colour due to the copper waste that was tipped all those days ago. On the valley floor one of the mines there is Wheal Ellen and the engine house there is special in that the stack is castellated, a very rare if not unique feature.

Grand shot Vince, the light haze adding that feeling of mystery and provoking thoughts
