Cornish Mining World Heritage

Carnglaze is Cornwall’s only slate mine (there are other, open cast quarries) and as such, played an important part in the mining heritage of Cornwall. It was of course slate that roofed the industrial revolution and the finely laminated, dark blue slate from Carnglaze was extensively used in South East Cornwall and further afield. At Carnglaze there is also visible evidence of tin and copper mining, not accessible today for safety reasons. Carnglaze is affiliated to the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site as members of the Cornish Mining Attractions Marketing Association. For more details see www.cornish-mining.org.uk
