One of Cornwall’s best preserved historic mines recently had its future secured with a £35,700 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The mine, located near Camborne, is one of the region’s most important heritage sites. The new funding will be used to both expand the museum and encourage more people to visit and learn about Cornwall's mining past. The money will also go towards a new museum project, aimed at further exploring the area’s flora and fauna and the archaeological remains.
Tony Brooks, who chairs King Edward Mine Ltd, commented on the new funding, saying that the grant would provide a real boost to the museum and allow it to expand into areas that, due to a lack of funding, were off limits until now.
