Grant allows young people to explore mine heritage site
Cornwall's oldest complete mine site has won lottery funding to create more activities for young people.
King Edward Mine Museum near Camborne was awarded a grant of £35,700 by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The money will be used to encourage young people to visit and learn about the area's industrial heritage.
The complex was worked until 1921, when it became an important part of Camborne School of Mines' training programme.
As well as industry, the project will investigate the flora, fauna and archaeology of the site and to build on the success of the 24th International Mining Games which were held at the site earlier in the year.

King Edward Mine chairman Tony Brooks said: "This is a real boost because it will enable the museum to move forward in areas we have previously been unable to progress."
