Hot tin mining

Q: In 1889, it was announced that the “only known continuous lode [of uranium
ore] in the world” had been found at the Union Mine in Grampound Road, Cornwall.
Does anybody know what happened to this deposit? There were plans to use the
uranium to replace gold in jewellery. Was this ever done? If so, it would add a
certain frisson to the Antiques Road Show.  read more »

Hello Hayle

We started a new adventure! We wanted to work with St.Austell’s Brewery. We had never been to Cornwall. Never been to the south of England. We haven’t seen much of Great Britain at all really.

We are from Canada. But let me start at the beginning of this journey.... We received a call –St. Austell’s had a lovely pub called the Cornish Arms (Hayle) would we be interested? John and I decided to take a road trip ( we were currently living in Morecambe enjoying the views of Morecambe Bay). We drove down to Hayle with Charlie Fynn our goldendoodle dog –quite the drive. Arrived at the pub and stayed in the holiday let  a 2 bedroom flat) –the pub looked lovely –the people were friendly.  read more »

Do you know of any marker or boundary stones in the Hayle area? I home-published a small booklet about them a couple of years ago but would like to update it and produce it as a proper book.

I know about most of the obvious ones -the 4 numbered milestones from Penpol Road to Connor Downs; Harvey/CCC marked posts; the GWR stone by the  34greenhouse on the King George Memorial Walk, etc., but there are many more. We are lucky they are still here and I'd like to record what the town has at the moment.  read more »

1954 | Angarrack Wesleyan Sunday School was engaging bands right up to 1954, at least

Angarrack Wesleyan Sunday School was engaging bands right up to 1954, at least. In 1886 they paid Copperhouse Band
£1. 10s. Eleven years later Copperhouse was charging £2.10s. In 1919 they engaged the prodigious
Camborne Town Band for £7.10s. But it must have been a rare luxury for next year it was back to
Copperhouse at £5. So Copperhouse had it until 1928 when St Erth made its first appearance at
the tea treat charging £5.10s. Perhaps fearing price competition they managed to reduce next
year to £4. 14s. 7d! Next year (1933) Hayle came at £5, then Camborne Junior. Marazion Band
came a couple of years and in 1937 they played indoors! Considering the size of the schoolroom

There is an account2 of the anniversary of the Hayle Sunday School which took place in June 1827
on Whit Monday (4th). The Hayle children were joined by the Angarrack branch of the school and 600
children went in procession with the two Wesleyan ministers at their head, “to the heights of the
Towans” and reached a natural amphitheatre “carpeted with nature's green”. “Appropriate”
hymns were sung after an address by the Rev. Thomas Martin after which they returned to the
chapel for tea and cakes. They then went to the beach, formed a circle where prayer was offered
and hymns sang and, on the way back, rested for a while at Riviere House and may well have sung
