The New Book of Lostwithiel

£8.99

Available in Stock

In the 13th century, Lostwithiel was the administrative heart of Cornwall and the centre of the important tin industry. Moving out of the spotlight in later centuries the town's main employment came from farming, iron mining and, from the 1930s, the creamery or 'milk factory'. The photographs accompanying this history of the town include many of local characters and community events from the last century.

This is one of the Halsgrove Community History series that uses archive photographs to look at the lives of small communities and how they have changed over the centuries.
