Danescombe Mine

Near Calstock, Cornwall

An imaginative conversion has made Danescombe Mine, the engine house of a former mine, a lovely and interesting Landmark. Standing by a stream in a steep wooded valley leading down to the Tamar in Cornwall, the mine worked on and off from 1822 to 1900.

This short history of Danescombe Mine was written and read by Anna Keay.
