01 - Trebartha-Lemarne Mixed Mine

From Venning’s Postal Directory of 1901:

“Trebartha-Lemarne Tin Mine is situate on the Trebartha Estate very near to the mansion of F R Rodd Esq. and is worked at present by water power, and very recently a large outlay has been made in erecting works for separating tin, arsenic and other minerals. It has been worked by a local company for 7 years, Mr J B James of Plymouth is the Purser, and Capt H Bennett of Redmoor [is] the Manager. The mine has a remarkable ancient history.”

What can you tell us about this ‘remarkable ancient history’?

 

02 - Luskey Copper Mine (Wheal Luskey) was an exploratory excavation which looked promising at first but was soon abandoned. It lies across the River Lynher due west of Trebartha Village.
