Listing Text

SW 74 SE
5/98 Cusvey Mines, Engine House
- part of the Consolidated Mines
Beam engine house ruin. Circa late C18. Killas rubble. Timber lintels.
Rectangular single-cell plan with round chimney clasping east corner. North west
wall is thicker to ground floor and is presumably an evolutionary early example. All
walls originally the same height, another possibly unique feature. Parts of each
wall now fallen.
Very few beam engine houses survive from the C18 and this example stands as physical
evidence of the then unresolved design problems associated with carrying the heavy
beam over the bob wall. Further study needed.
