At the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site are four Cornish beam engines that recall one of the earliest applications of steam power to industry. Two of the beam engines, preserved in towering engine houses, were originally powered by high-pressure steam boilers introduced by the inventor and mining engineer, Richard Trevithick.
