The Bassett Mines

British Mining No 32 – The Bassett Mines

by M. Palmer & P. Neaverson

The Bassett mines were – and, in great measure, remain – one of the most interesting and widespread copper prizes of 19th century Cornwall. Today, their gaunt engine house ruins and dressing floors are a mecca for the industrial archaeologist.

This monograph outlines their history and goes a long way in interpreting the overlapping technologies once practiced here.

The book is packed with illustrations and photographs old and new.
