The Miner With A Camera

Clive Benney’s new book about miner and photographer Sammy Solway is at the printer and will be available approx 20th July 2020.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 the Museum is not open to visit and buy a copy but you can order it at St Agnes Museum online shop.

The Miner With A Camera

It has many previously unseen photographs of St Agnes, Mithian, Trevellas, Cross Coomb and Perranporth.

It is a fascinating story about how this young man, whose aim was to enhance his mining wages, bought a camera and captured so much otherwise unrecorded history.

220 pages including 245 photographs.

Not to be missed.
