My ancestor Stephen Harvey-James was purser of Botallack Mine in the mid to late 1800’s. Cyril Noall’s Book ‘Botallack’ gives the history of the mine.
Very nice site and great to see Underground Cornwall as my ancestors would have known it. I remember reading about the mine disaster as a kid.
When ever I visit Cornwall I pop into St Just Church Yard to visit the family grave.
There is a great picture of the mine in the Manchester Art Gallery painted in approx 1863(R.A Hook)
Best wishes Justin Harvey-James.
Welcome to the wonderful world of web development, the site is looking good and black and white works so well for the pics
