South Crofty from Heartlands

A bit of a nostalgic look back of the last working tin mine of Cornwall. As a working mine South Crofty came to a close in March 1998, however, there have been attempts to reopen the mine with the rise in the price of tin but so far and with many hiccups the mine remains closed. Another issue is the UNESCO World Heritage for Cornish Mining, if the mine did reopen- would this affect the status of the World Heritage bestowed on the area?

I didn't realise the last mine didn't close until 1998. Very nicely processed Vince.
