March 6th 1998

The date of the title is the date the last operational tin mine in Cornwall ending a continuous industry dating back about 4,000 years in one form or another. The picture shows the headgear of South Crofty mine which over the years has encompassed many mines of the area and the mine reached a depth of nearly 3'000 feet. A number of attempts at reopening the mine have gone on since but as yet I do not know if it ever will , but one always lives in hope. The picture was taken from the very new Heartlands site where the Robinson's shaft engine house has been preserved in a resource area- see POE pic id No. 1175231 or 1175233.
