This is the engine house at Wheal Ellen which is in the valley just below Mount Hawke and just to the south east of Porthtowan. There has been some deterioration and also some repair to the structure in the intervening 40 years. Lionel Sear Excellent shot.
They arrive at Raven's place. Update: at the time of posting this, I was doubtful this could be found. Wrong!
This is Wheal Basset Farm which, as above, is in the valley below Mount Hawke and to the south east of Porthtowan. This is on private land but the great news is that one can let it. Google the farm name for more details. Brilliant sleuthing from Lionel and Cynthia Sear, our Cornish experts, who add the pine tree is still there as well.
Bolam and Lacey explore the mines.
This is the south side of the Blue Hills Mine engine house which is visible in picture cruc009. Lionel Sear. Spot on!
