Photo post of the week

In which we visit Cornwall


This week, still from my summer holiday uploads: castles and derelict mineshafts.

Abandoned mineshaft near St Agnes Towanreath Engine House, St Agnes Graffiti near St Agnes Head, Cornwall

The engine house in the bottom row is the well-known Towanroath engine house near St Agnes. The name probably isn’t that well-known, but as it’s perched halfway up a cliffside over the Atlantic, it’s a stock location for Cornish landscape shoots; so much so that it was on the cover of one of the guide books we took with us.* I remember it appearing in the 1980s children’s horror film Haunters Of The Deep, which starts with two of the characters looking down the grated-over mineshaft next to the engine house and listening to the sound of the sea coming up it.
