About this title

Synopsis:

In 2006, UNESCO designated Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape a World Heritage Site. In the eighteenth century, Cornwall was one of the country's principal industrial areas. Before the late 1870s, it produced more tin than any other region in the world, and in the early nineteenth century its output of copper was two-thirds of world production. The remains of the mines contribute to a distinctive cultural landscape; more than 200 engine houses survive - the largest concentration of such monuments in the world. This book, and its companion Cornish Mines: Gwennap to the Tamar, is a guide to the best examples of the surviving mines, with stunning photographs and authoritative text.

About the Author:

After a career in industry, Barry Gamble entered the specialist field of heritage interpretation in the 1990s. He was a member of the Bid Team for the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site as principal author of the nomination to UNESCO's World Heritage List. This experience led to projects in Australia, Mexico, South Africa, New Zealand, South America, Poland and Japan. Barry continues to work regularly and extensively on a variety of subjects across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and always has a camera to hand.
