Mining in Cornwall Vol 2 by L.J. Bullen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A companion to Volume One: The Central District this book widens it's focus to study important workings accross the Duchy of Cornwall, from the oldest tine mines of the St Just area to the major workings at Tregurtha Downs, Great Wheal Vor and Wheal Kitty, to mention a few. In a county whose wealth came out of the ground, whether as tin, lead, copper or uranium, mining has shaped Cornwall's landscape and people, affecting every aspect of the county's life. Here, J.H. Trounson and L.J. Bullen show the development of mining from its earliest times and the impact of continually changing technology. From Cornwall's innovations in pumping and winding engines to the dramatic result of falling mineral prices in the twentieth century, the rise and fall of a proud industry is brought to life in a stunning selection of pictures, many of them published for the first time. Beautifully illustrated and meticulously researched, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in this most attractive of counties and most ancient of industries.
