Wheal Coates from Chapel Porth

View across Chapel Porth beach to the Wheal Coates engine house on the cliffs behind.

Wheal Coates is one of the best known of the engine houses in Cornwall, probably due to its dramatic location. The adjacent workings reach down to the sea which can be heard crashing below at high tide. Some of the caves on the beach lead into the mine workings
