SW 64SE CARN BREA WHEAL TEHIDY LANE
1535-/5/10009
Chimney stack approx 60m N
of Wheal Tehidy House

GV II

Chimney to former pumping engine house disused 1834-1842. Squared coursed granite base and coursed granite rubble shaft. An octagonal base with vertical sides to a thin string course beneath a battered rubble shaft. The former brick top section has been removed. HISTORY: The chimney is the last surviving part of the Wheal Tehidy mine, which worked from 1834 unti1 1842 and again from 1851 to 1864. The base is a distinctive architectural feature not widely found on Cornish engine houses and the chimney occupies a prominent position with the nearby stacks of the former East Pool and Wheal Tolgus mines contributing to this important industrial landscape.
