The Changing Landscape of Mid Cornwall
Ivor Bowditch will show you how this area is being transformed from an industrial landscape to a green and pleasant environment with heathland and woodlands.
China Clay has been extracted from mid Cornwall for over 250 years.
Approximately 2 billion tonnes of ground have been excavated during this time, creating until the 1970s a unique lunar landscape.
Meet at Wheal Martyn Museum for the Mini Bus.
