Wheal Trevaunance Cost Book

We’ve dipped into our New Purchases Fund to buy a leather-bound Cost Book for Trevaunance Mine, near Higher Bal on the edge of St Agnes. The entries date from 1879 when the mine was owned by the powerful Enys family. It’s a welcome addition to our mining-related artefacts.
