New technology flies over the old.

Wheal Coates Tin Mine

On the left of the picture are the ruins of two engine houses dating from 1880 and 1910, on the right the whim engine house dating from 1872. In the air, a hang glider dating from 2017.

It’s interesting to imagine what the workers emerging from these buildings would have thought if they could have seen this scene.

Thank you for your visit and your comments, they are greatly appreciated.
