With Dickie kindly uploading more of his photos from the 1970s and the latest being Wheal Edward, I have a question that I have pondered on for years.
Has West Owles pumping shaft ever been open?
I am aware Cargodna is open and been up the adit there and through it.
Looked long and hard for any sign of Owles adit, West Owles pumping shaft must cut it. Tried a bit of digging on the shore a few years back, waste of time.
Did it come out at high tide mark or further up the cliff.
Questions, questions, anyone have any answers or even thoughts?
