Hello everyone,

A while back I took some photos of Wheal Friendly (they're not great) and was hoping to get some information to go with them. My internet based research hasn't come up with a lot...

Anyone know what's going on with the 'renovations' on around the remains of the stone crusher? There was a little poster put up on the gate but I can't remember what it said.

Cheers,
Caitlin

I've got the basic information about dates and roughly how much they mined, but I wondered if anyone knew anything else exciting about it?

And if anyone knew what was happening with the site now?
I popped by again, but the little sign has been artfully covered up by a poster for boat rental...

If it's the Wheal Friendly from the St. Agnes area... check out the National Archives -
