Mining in our Area

This is the main adit for Wheal Vlow – 2009

The adit has been bricked up heavily with a small gap at the top.

Interestingly the large pipe coming out of the brick work is a section of the former rising main from the original Cornish beam pumping engine that used to be situated on the main shaft of the mine
