Full description

HARRIS, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV22166.

At poldice mine, the wheel pit and the remains of some walls can be seen south of the river walkham, near grenofen bridge. Further up the hillside, above the tip of rubble, an adit leads in to a shaft. Worked in the 1880's, small yields of lead, copper and tin were obtained. A tin mine, probably closing in the late 1870's, it lies on the east bank of the walkham valley close beside the site of the walkham viaduct, stone from which, after its demolition in 1965 was used for filling the deep mines shaft (harris).
