About

The deep underground mines, engine houses, foundries, new towns, smallholdings, ports and harbours, and their ancillary industries reflect prolific innovation which, in the early 19th century, enabled the region to produce two-thirds of the world’s supply of copper.

The substantial remains are a testimony to the sophistication and success of early and large-scale hard rock mining and also show the contribution Cornwall and West Devon made to the Industrial Revolution and to the fundamental influence the area had on the development of mining globally.
