Levant Mine and Beam Engine

Important notice -

We’re sorry to say that our steam engine will not be running when we open Levant this Saturday 17th March. Specialist engineers are working on both the boiler and the engine.There's still plenty to see and find out about our amazing mine though.

High-up on the exposed cliffs of the 'Tin Coast' and part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. At its heart, the restored 1840s beam engine running on steam.

Cornish Choughs

The population of choughs in Cornwall declined towards the end of the 18th century. In the spring of 2002 a major milestone was achieved: a pair of choughs settled in a nest site on National Trust land. In the summer, four chicks were hatched, the first born in Cornwall for over 50 years. This video shows how the National Trust, RSPB, Natural England and tenant farmers work together to protect these special birds.
