THE END

THE END
This is the head gear of the tin/copper mine of South Crofty at Pool in Cornwall. The mine ceased production in March 1998 and was the last working tin mine in Kernow and with that an uninterrupted industry of one sort or another came to an end after about 4,000 years ! There have been a few attempts to reactivate the mine but with a quite a lot of failures I am not sure what the future will bring.

They're talking about opening it again but for metals other than tin this time. We'll see. Familiar sight to me from the Tesco car park! Nice shot.
