Cotehele Quay was a thriving area during Victorian times. For hundreds of years the River Tamar was the principal access route to the estate. The stone lime kilns and old buildings help tell the story of this once-booming industrial hub.This piece of equipment was used as lifting gear when loading tin and arsenic.
