Synopsis

This book, the third in the Mining in Cornwall series, covers most of the Penwith and South Kerrier areas of Cornwall. The Penwith peninsula constitutes once of the major mining areas of Cornwall from which a prodigious quantity of tin has been won. It is the second largest producer of tin in the Duchy after the Camborne/Redruth/St Day district. The output of copper has also been significant and, among other minerals recorded, are arsenic (as a by-product of tin), china clay and a small tonnage of iron ore. As in previous volumes L.J. Bullen uses the stunning pictures from his collection to illustrate the history of the most important industry of Cornwall. Many of the photographs in this volume are published for the first time. They are supported by detailed and carefully researched captions describing the development of this industry throughout the last two centuries. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the region and in mining industry that so strongly characterised Cornwall's economy, history and society for many centuries.
