About the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site

The Mine & Yours activity guide will introduce you to the story of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. It’s a story of everyday people, hundreds of thousands of them, who had a profound effect on the landscape they lived in… and on the world we live in today.

World Heritage Sites are places of significance and value to the whole of humanity. Cornwall and West Devon’s mining landscape World Heritage Site, shaped during a period of intense industrial activity, is testimony to one of the greatest periods of economic, technological and social development Britain has ever known.
