|THE LEVANT STEAM ENGINE||Museums & Galleries|
|Trewellard, Pendeen, near St Just, Cornwall, TR19 7SX|
In its tiny engine house perched on the cliff edge, the famous Levant beam engine is steaming again after sixty idle years.
The sight, sounds and smells of this 160-year-old engine conjure up the feel of Cornwall’s industrial past. Half a mile along the cliff is Geevor mine (not NT) and a mining museum.
A short underground tour takes the visitor from the miners’ dry to the main engine shaft via a spiral staircase (subject to completion of work in progress).
