This was quite a nice find that I found whilst I was looking for some of the costal pillboxes that used to line the coast of Cornwall to fend off enemy ships and planes during the war.
I don't have much history to this however they are located in between Praa Sands and Porthleven and that apparently the mine shafts and buildings were part of a copper and tin mine company and after they had mined out the deposits of these metals that buildings and shafts were left abandoned.
Anyway, here are some of the pictures I got :

Thanks for reading
If anyone knows the history of these buildings please feel free to message me and tell me because I'm interested in why they weren't demolished.

I would have went in if i had my torches and other gear on me but unfortunately all i had was my phone and camera when i found this. Rookie mistake really so i always carry a torch now.
