Cornish Mines 1

Cornish Mines 1: To make things easier I have split the individual mine pages into several header pages of which this is the first. The mines and sites are in alphabetical order and will hold several (if not more) images of the mine in question. So, at least this way the visitor can skim through and have a look at only the pages that are of interest.

For each mine that is in this category I have included one image on this page. Either click the image or follow the link below to go to the page. So all these pages have been or are being updated. Certainly I am getting to the point where I am finally almost finished.
