Old Millclose Mine – Watt’s Engine House

Old Millclose Mine – Watt’s Engine House – Surface features include the ruins of the Watt’s Shaft Cornish pumping engine house, the foundations of a winding house possibly also incorporating a boiler for this to the north, and a larger boiler house between with three short flues to a chimney base.

There are also foundations of another building, slope-retaining walls, and the site of a capstan. The shaft gives access to one small section of extensive and important pipe workings.

Very extensive hillocks have been largely removed/reworked and thus are not included in the defined area of interest.
