A Cornish Mining Pilgrimage

Physical Separation '17 finished today with my brief introduction to Cornwall's copper and tin mining heritage. We then travelled the 12 miles to the heart of the historic Camborne-Redruth area, for a leisurely 2 mile stroll around the now severely overgrown ruins of the 19th and early 20th century Basset mines, which finally closed in 1918 (see also posting of 3rd June).

Chatting in a concave buddle!
