Tresayes Feldspar (Trezaise Or Polpuff) Other Rock Quarry (United Kingdom)


The quarry worked a pegmatite lense for felspar for insulator maufacture during both world wars. The site is mainly of geological interest and has little to offer from an industrial archaeological point of view although it is easy to access and is worth a visit.
