Botallack Tin Mines

Botallack Tin Mines

The beautiful and perilously positioned engine houses are just some of the remains of the Bottalack Tin mine on the Cornish coast, which operated from 1815-1914 producing thousands of tonnes of copper, tin and arsenic. The shafts were all dug by hand the longest extended half a mile under the sea bed. Botallack. Cornwall.
