Random Mine of the Day : Hingston Down Consols Mine. WITH BONUS MYSTERY THING!!!

Pp pointed out to me the other day that I never walk at Hingston Down mine, so today I did.

Hingston Down was a Copper, tin, wolfram and arsenic mine.  According to Aditnow, this enginehouse was built in 1905 to house a second hand beam engine.  They never got it working properly since their shaft was too wiggly, and the mine eventually closed, with an air of disappointed expectations.
