Cornwall today does not have any productive working tin mines. It was over the past centuries Cornwall's main stay industry. As mines closed when the price of tin hits low prices and was also cheaper to mine in other parts of the world, Cornish miners would leave their beloved county and find work around the world. Cornish miner were reknowned for the mining abilities. The saying is still heard in Cornwall ''Down every hole in the ground from Bolivia to Australia you will find a Cornish decendent '' The cornish coast has many mines who's tunnels often extended for many miles out under the sea bed. These building left were the engine houses to operate the steam operated machinery.
