Talking To tyro: Beam pump

Hello John, thanks for your kind and comprehensive critique,there is a plaque attached to the mine which explains that this building was erected to house a Cornish beam pumping engine in 1877 when all pumping,winding and crushing of ore was carried out by steam power having previously relied upon water.
Warm regards Les.
