Details

CHACEWATER SW 74 SW 4/37 Engine house and boiler house and - workshop ruins at Engine Shaft, part of Killifreth Mine at SW 736442 SW II Beam engine house ruin with attached chimney and ancillery ruins. Circa late C19. Killas rubble with granite quoins, jambstones and bonding stones. Round stone rubble chimney with brick upper stage (north west) and round-headed brick arch to bob wall. Otherwise timber lintels. Rectangular plan with ruins of rectangular building to north and further ruined engine house to west. Main engine house has no floor, roof or timberwork over bob wall but stone walls are fairly intact except west gable which has fallen. Chimney has corbelled brick collar. Killifreth Mine was re-started in 1865 and engines were installed so that greater depths could be worked, and presumably this engine house is part of the new scheme. Killifreth at this time was also linked to Great Wheal Busy and Wheal Unity Wood.
