Built around 1846 for the new Engine shaft, the structure housed what was believed to have been an inverted Bull engine to work with the beam lower and virtually inside the house. The shaft was also partly inset

The remains of the boiler house can be seen at the side of the engine house and the chimney, of which Cornish tradition has fallen to the easier built square structure, stands some distance away.
