For those of you that are watching Poldark on ITV at the moment, this is the Levant mine that it was filmed at, along with several other places in Cornwall, St.Agnes being one of them along with Bodmin moor.
Part of Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site, this is the only Cornish beam engine anywhere in the world that is still in steam on its original mine site. The famous Levant engine is housed in a small engine house perched on the edge of the cliffs. Restored after 60 idle years by a group of volunteers known as the 'Greasy Gang', it is a thrilling experience for young and old alike to see this old engine in action, with its evocative sounds and smells.
