The engine house in the foreground is Wheal Edward stamps, part of Wheal Owles. In January 1893 twenty mines were drowned here in an accident which closed the mine. The bodies were never recovered. The Crowns engine houses of Botallack Mine are low down on the cliff to the left; calciner stack (built in about 1860 for the stamps engine) behind the engine house and the stack for Allen's Shaft engine (built about 1907) righ background.
