 Caradon Mining District
The mines working the immediate extensions of the South Caradon lodes – East Caradon and West Caradon – were the most successful – some of the others were little more than trials or speculations and were soon no more than memories, whilst a small number worked patchily for decades, barely paying their way.
It took ten years to build the railway which was to link the mines to Liskeard – the nearest stannary town, and from there to the port of Looe and it was not until the 1850s that it linked up the majority of the mines and quarries which had sprung up in the area.
The establishment by Caradon District Council of a Countryside Officer for south-east Bodmin Moor and the conversion of an engine house into a visitor centre are, however, the first steps in an ambitious project to conserve the impressive remains of the industrial heritage of the area.
