Cornish Mine Images 4: South Crofty Tin Mine, this image was taken in 2013 before demolition of the site took place. Today 2018 the headframe still stands tall and there are plans in the pipeline for the old mine to re-open.

This sister site I hope will expand as time goes by, is primarily a comment page for the main website. My friend Martin Wolstenholme (Previously a South Crofty Miner) suggested the idea that ex-miner’s could leave messages for old work colleagues. Also some where the visitor could leave comments and feedback. In addition to the main site I also maintain a dedicated Facebook Page where I regularly post new images and news, so please have a look and like it if you can.

  1. Well seeing as it was my idea I suppose I had better kick it off then!
    I’d just like to thank Simon for taking the time and trouble to put this fantastic website together. Some of the images transport me right back to some of the best times I’ve spent in my working life and I’m sure many of my colleagues will have felt a twinge or two of nostalgia when they scan through these iconic pictures. Monochrome seems to add a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the whole feel of this catalogue and gives me a real sense of belonging to such an amazing industry. Keep up the good work Simon, it’s a wonderful thing you are doing!

  2. What an interesting website with a great deal of wonderful photographs. Keep up the great work, and look forward to when you’re down this way again – Tin Miner
