The engine house Wheal Coates North Cornwall, UK. Old Cornish tin mine.  Many of the mines used to tunnel out under the seabed putting the miners in very dangerous conditions.

Botallack mine. Situated at Botallack, a village situated between Pendeen & St.Just, Cornwall. This was a former tin mine (copper & arsenic were also mined here, but in lesser quantity than tin). The mine, that  extended out beneath the sea, closed in 1895. The photo shows the remains of the engine house.
