West Wheal Owles, also known as Cargodna Mine, is situated on the cliffs on the right of the photo. The Crowns at Botallack can be seen perched just above the sea on the left of the photo. Between them are the remains of Botallack's numerous mining ventures, all part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

These mines and this stretch of coastline, features prominently in the BBC's latest adaptation of Winston Graham's Poldark saga. West Wheal Owles is featured as Captain Poldark's Wheal Leisure and The Crowns Engine Houses depict Francis Poldark's mine, Grambler.
