Cornish Mines

This first Gallery page of Cornish Mines contains a few random images from the website that I especially like, there are so many images now on the site I have lost track. The many mine sites all over Cornwall can vary from having Engine Houses standing tall or just a few remaining spoil heaps. Each is open to interpretation and personal enjoyment, only a small amount of the history can be seen, the bulk is underground.
The rest of the drop down menus on this category link to individual Cornish Mines Galleries which can also be accessed from the “Mining Areas” menu list. Click on the image and the link will take you to that specific page.
