Description

This latest book, the fifth in the Mining in Cornwall series between St Ives and Cubert. It includes a number of well-known mines such as Wheal Kitty, Polberro, East Wheal Rose and Treamble. The majority of photos are published for the first time. In particular the scenes which comprise the cameos of three of the mines are unique record. A great deal of mineral wealth was wrought from the lodes of this area. Porthtowan. St Agnes and Perranporth are part of one of the oldest mining districts in the Duchy. A number of references are made to engineering firms within Cornwall that manufactured machinery for the mines. These establishments owed their origin's to the indigenous mining industry and eventually exported all manner of equipment, and expertise, world-wide. The author has, once again, produced an eminently readable book which is thoroughly researched and enhanced by an informed commentary. Even those only moderately interested in the subject will be impressed by these images of a by-gone age.
