SW 74 SW
Engine house to West Peevor
Mine at SW 705 440
Engine house (probably for stamps) at former tin mine; now derelict. Probably
1878. Uncoursed granite and killas rubble, with bob wall of granite, window
arches of brick, brick upper stage to chimney. Rectangular plan on north-south
axis, with bob wall to north, chimney attached at south-east corner. Three
stages, with round-headed openings including driver's window in bob wall; former
cylinder door in rear wall now collapsed. Tapered cylindrical chimney still intact,
with small rectangular opening at ground level on south side, moulded cornice to
stone stage, and corniced top. Much of the building heavily clad in ivy at time
of survey (1988). History: mine formerly worked as West Treleigh Mine; new
shaft sunk in 1878, following early success of Wheal Peevor (q.v.), and initially
pumped from that mine; closed 1898 after fall in tin prices (information provided
by Mr Justin Brook). Though detached from the larger site to the east, shares
group value with it.
