Very well done 'C'



For some reason your suggested location on the map appears not to have moved the pin on the map.

Hi C and Dave Brunt Very well done C. I've moved the pin to the location of Brent Tor Church. Please feel free to move it slightly to get it spot on. It was previously marked near Carn Brea!

Hi c,



Thanks for spotting this one, it's been a trouble for simply ages! We'll update the catalogue, and post the new data here in due course.



Yours, Katy

Yes this is Monkstone Manganese Mine



First developed in 1818, achieved the very high output of 3,265 tons of manganese, valued at £4,658, in the brief period between 1879 and 1881, during which years it actually out produced nearby Chillaton and Hogstor. Unfortunately, very little is known of the history of this mine.



All that remains today is an old shaft, some reservoirs leading to a pretty much leveled engine house, stack base and some small dumps accessible via a footpath through the site.

Dear all,



Unfortunately the suggested grid-references for this image, including the most recent "Buckland Monachorum", haven't got it yet. But hopefully someone will get there in the end. Anyone know a member of the Trevithick Society?

So, from your comment you think it maybe near Camborne.

Best Wishes.

I think that this is in the Yelverton to Callington area. Perhaps someone who knows that area can help?

Ground looks remarkably chalky.

Trouble is that everything might now be cleared to leave a level field. Going to check the Treskillard area of Camborne.

This has to be in Cornwall somewhere.The ruins look to be those of an engine house pumping out a tin/copper mine,there looks to be areas of spoil below the buildings and possibly ore dressing floors to the right of ruins.The small almost circular area to the right of the trees could be a buddle.

On checking, will change my guess to somewhere around Camborne- Redruth.

Could be up St. Just. Soil looks a shade white so maybe up Balswidden.
