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.
