Levant Mine and Beam Engine

Situated in the far west of Cornwall between St Just and Pendeen, Levant is another fascinating example of Cornwall's Mining Heritage.

Whereas nearby Geevor, was a working mine until relatively recently, Levant was an older generation mine. Dating from the heyday of Cornwall's industrial past, it shows the character and hardship of the life that the miners endured. It is perched on the edge of a cliff and it's beam engine is now working again after a gap of 60 years. The minehead a major disaster in 1919 when the beam broke and a large number of men were killed.

Tours are available but other facilities are obviously limited by its isolated location and further information is available below at the National Trust Website.
