Carn Gavler

Two ruined engine houses have been partly restored by the National Trust. They were built for a 40 inch pumping engine (west) and a 20 inch whim engine (east). Unusually whim faces away from the shaft. The count house is now a climbing hut for climbers visiting the Bosigran cliffs. Down below, before the stream cascades into Porthmoina Cove, are the ruins of a tin mill with a wheelpit. The deep adit can be seen emerging at the back of the cove. The mine was worked as part of Morvah and Zennor United, but produced little tin

Without these the landscape around there would look so different
it really towers above everything else and this angle highlights it even more. cracking shot, John
Excellent p.o.v. John. With the clouds finishing it off.
Impressive ruin and very good POV for your shot.
wow John....This is just Gigangic! Emormous but beautifully captured!
This is another of those times when it would be great to go back and see them working.
