Books / Re: 2019, Joseph, Levant Mine
« Last post by Frank de Wit on October 06, 2019, 03:37:25 PM »
Synopsis from the Trevithick Society - Levant is one of the truly great mines of West Cornwall. Noted for its great mineral wealth, the grandeur of its cliff top site and its workings beneath the sea, it has a history which combines triumph and tragedy in equal measure. The full story of Levant has yet to be written but in the interim a group of writers has come together, who have been, and are, researching various aspects of the mine’s history. They address a variety of topics from the very early days, right up to Levant’s recent emergence as a major mining heritage site. In addition the book contains a significant number of hitherto unpublished photographs from various periods. The Trevithick Society claims descent from the small group who in 1935 saved the famous Levant winding engine for preservation and has been involved in the mine’s story throughout its existence.

This volume by various hands contains a great deal of new research on the history of Levant from the earliest days to closure in 1930. It also covers the story of the preserved whim engine from its purchase in 1935 to its return to steam. There are many hitherto unseen photographs and considerable insights into the conservation of the mine site over the last 30 years
We   are   pleased   to   give   advance   noticeof   the   Society’s   latest   publication,   Levant Mine,   An   Anthology.    This    is    a    volume    of    essays    containing    significant    new research   and   many   previously   unpublished   photographs.   The   articles   deal   with aspects   of   the   mine’s   history   as   well   as   work   to   restore   the   Levant   whim   back   to steam   and   restoration   work   to   the   broader   site.   The   book   also   covers   the   Man- Engine   Disaster   of   1919   and   information   on   the   families   affected.   Hard   back   and soft   back   versions   will   be   published.   This   October   marks   the   centenary   of   the Man-Engine     Disaster.
