Emblematic of Cornwall's mining heritage, the romantic abandoned engine houses that litter the landscape are now an attraction of its principal industry: tourism. This illustrated history examines the origins and development of tin and copper mining, quarrying, china clay extraction and fishing in Cornwall as well as the diverse transport network that developed to serve these industries and later bring tourists to the area. The book includes map references and can be used as a practical guidebook.
