The Book of Breage & Germoe (pdf e-book)
  • Description
  • Related

The Book of Breage & Germoe traces the history of the district's mines and how the industry gave rise to a thriving community. Watercourses are followed from their sources, through diversions in leats, ending at the many water-wheels that once provided power for mineral extraction.

The development of the local families is explored, from the establishment of the first cottages and fields, to the emergence of a resourceful community which survived the decline of mining in the early 1900s by turning to agriculture and market gardening.

As the history of each century unfolds, so too does the rich tapestry that is the story of this remarkable Cornish mining town, captured here in this handsome volume for generations to treasure. Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 1 84114 243 3, 297x210mm, 160 pages. Published October 2003. pdf e-book February 2011.
