The smell of oil, hiss of steam and clank of winding drums turning. Levant’s 1840’s restored beam engine is still steaming today and can be visited as part of the National Trust tour around the mine.
A mine of riches and tragedy. Levant was a profitable business with workings reaching over a mile out under the seabed, some of the chimneys from Levant’s seven engines can still be seen today as well as the entrance to the man-engine tunnel. The man-engine carried miners down the mine but in October 1919 the man-engine suffered a disastrous failure and 31 men died in what is known as the Levant mining disaster.
The Levant landscape is open for walkers to enjoy year round and visits to the engine, man-engine tunnel and other historic buildings can be seen as part of a tour with the National Trust.
