Cornwall museum explores long history of the china clay industry
A Cornish museum has turned "fifty shades of clay" for an exhibition celebrating the quarrying heritage of the St Austell area.
To mark the publication of a book about the region's internationally important industry and the communities which grew up as a result, Wheal Martyn is staging a display of photographs, documents and memorabilia. The Little Book Of The Clay Country by Emma Mansfield looks at china clay production and the lives of the villages involved, with sections on music, faith and traditions.
Museum manager Gemma Martin said: "The transformation of the exhibition space is amazing and reflects the effort and energy that Emma Mansfield has put in."
Wheal Martyn, which is housed in the preserved remains of a Victorian clay works at Carthew, reopens on January 20 and the exhibition will run until the end of February.
