Exploring Cornwall – The Pumping Engine Houses of Carn Brea

This is the first of a mini series of explorations of Cornwall with my friend Mark Sellwood who lives in Redruth. Carn Brea is adjacent to Redruth, a large mountainous hills littered with the remnants from the Cornish mining days. The old steam pumping engine houses stand sturdy. The housed the steam engines that drained the water from the mine shafts enabling the miners to extract the necessary minerals they were after, such as tin.

Mark and I explore the ruins of a couple of them on Carn Brea.
