aerial photograph of South Caradon 19th century copper mine St Cleer , Cornwall Cornwall England UK. The photograph shows the The Jope's Shaft pumping engine house at South Caradon Mine which is a Grade II listed historic ruin. Tin had been mined in the area since prehistoric times and copper was extracted from the 16th century onwards. This mine was opened in 1836 with Jope's Shaft sunk around 1850. The pumping engine house originally contained a Sims compound engine and the boiler was contained in a separate boiler house. The mine closed in 1885 due to a combination of faling ore prices and exhaustion.

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
