Botallack

Reference: CO107
Location: Cornwall
Gallery: Cornwall,

The lower engine house at Botallack bathed in low side lighting. Tin, copper and arsenic were mined here from around 1815 with tunnels extending under the sea in places for half a mile. The mine closed around 1900 because of falling tin and copper prices.
