The remains of Wheal Jenkin with the Stamps Engine House to the left which would drive the 40 heads of stamps to crush the ore. To the right is the pumping engine house at Bellingham's Shaft. . The embankment of the Liskeard and Caradon mineral railway can be seen passing between the two engine houses which was built to convey the ores of copper and tin along with granite from the Caradon mining district to connect initially with the Liskeard and Looe Canal and later the Liskeard and Looe Railway. Minions, Cornwall . Now forming part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, showing it's importance as part of the Industrial Revolution. . As quoted from the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site: . 'Much of the landscape of Cornwall and West Devon was transformed in the 18th and early 19th centuries as a result of the rapid growth of pioneering copper and tin mining. Its deep underground mines, engine houses, foundries, new towns, smallholdings, ports and harbours, and their ancillary industries together reflect prolific innovation which, in the early 19th century, enabled the region to produce two-thirds of the world’s supply of copper. The substantial remains are a testimony to the contribution Cornwall and West Devon made to the Industrial Revolution in the rest of Britain and to the fundamental influence the area had on the mining world at large. Cornish technology embodied in engines, engine houses and mining equipment was exported around the world. Cornwall and West Devon were the heartland from which mining technology rapidly spread.' . whc.unesco.org/en/licenses/6
