Mining in Cornwall Database
There are eleven main metalliferous areas in Cornwall. A section dedicated to each area has been set up to complement the successful World Heritage Site Bid of 14th July 2006. Cornwall in Focus has revisited these areas taking photographs and researching information in order to set up this comprehensive Mining Database for each district. There are over 270 mines listed dedicated to all the major mines of Cornwall.
The areas in question are: Penwith and St. Ives; Camborne & Crowan, Redruth, Illogan and St. Agnes; and the Wendron & Gwinear area in the west; Gwennap and the Carnon Valley in Mid Cornwall and a large area bounded by Perranzabuloe, St. Austell, and Wadebridge to the Caradon Mining District and Tamar Valley Mining District centred on Callington, Calstock and Gunnislake in the east.
