Cornish Mines Visits
Around 2002 to 2003 we visited various Cornish Mines and filmed the sites as they were then and also took numerous photographs. These are available on eBay: search "Cornish Mines Visits". You can also buy both DVDs from us by sending £8 (inc p & p) to via PayPal or £4.50 for one - please state DVD 1 or DVD 2. Please also see Trevithick Day below.
We can also provide a large number of photos of the mines as they were then. Please email for details.
Have a look at our rather bashful introduction - who is that old git?

Camborne Trevithick Day DVD
Seems a long time ago now, but in 2005 I went to Camborne for Trevithick Day and took a lot of film of the engines, the fairground music and also tried to convey the atmosphere of this great local occasion. I produced a DVD with four sections: the display in the town, accompanied in much of the film by some great organ music, the parade through the villages next day, film of some of the engines down my road and a specially produced slideshow of views with music. About 2 hours in total. Price: £4 inc postage by PayPal to
I hope to upload a demo film shortly. Meanwhile here is a small collage of photos from the DVD:
