Abandoned mine, UK

So I can’t actually remember where we found this beauty on our travels in Cornwall. I believe it was somewhere between Penzance and St. Ives on a one track road. After seeing the mine in the distance, we just stopped off and explored.

The building itself was made in the late 1800s so it is deteriorating and completely over grown with wild plants.

I love taking pictures of abandoned buildings as it brings up so many unanswered (and often unanswerable) questions. It makes me curious as to what the building looked and felt like in its prime, in this case during the 1800s + 1900s.

Most of the pictures I took of this small mine don’t do it justice. But here are a few I wanted to share.
