Wheal Coates from Chapel Porth beach

Looking up to Wheal Coates engine house which sits on the cliffs above Chapel Porth beach. Located between Porthtowan and St Agnes this is one of Cornwall's most iconic engine houses.

The Towanroath Pumping Engine House (to give it its proper name) was used to pump water out of the shaft that ran down below sea level at this site.
