Seeking Miners, Growers and Forestry Workers!

Disused Cornish tin mine

To create an oral history of the Valley we are looking for anyone who remembers what life was like working in the mines, the market garden industry, forestry or ferries. The oral history will form part of the Heritage Hub, which will store a wealth of historical information about the valley in an online resource that schools, academics and researchers can use.  So, if you have any information that can help, please get in touch with Gary Lewis, Tamara Senior Heritage Officer:
