Artist's Description

Levant Mine, Pendeen, Cornwall

This property is in the care of the National Trust ~ info from their site:
‘Part of Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site, this is the only Cornish beam engine anywhere in the world that is still in steam on its original mine site.
The famous Levant engine is housed in a small engine house perched on the edge of the cliffs.
Restored after 60 idle years by a group of volunteers known as the ’Greasy Gang’, it is a thrilling experience for young and old alike to see this old engine in action, with its evocative sounds and smells’

… the day we visited had to have been the wettest mistiest day in May … not the best light but perhaps the best way to get a glimpse of just how wet and cold those miners must have felt as they worked the old tin mines on bleak winter days of old!
