Under The Surface Of St Ives - Tin Mining History

St Ives - View Towards Consols From Rosewall Hill
St Ives - View Towards Consols From Rosewall Hill

St Ives is not as well known for tin mining as Camborne and Pendeen - but it does have a rich mining history. You can see the old engine house chimneys from many viewpoints, particularly from the top end of town.

Local author Rob Donovan has written an interesting article about the history of mining in and around St Ives - with a focus on the mines, now long closed, along The Stennack and at Consols.

Well worth a read - and published in two parts on his blog:

Under The Surface Of St Ives - Part One
