Morvah: Portheras Valley
Tin was dressed here by water-powered stamping mills. Additional supplies of water were required, brought by high-level leats from the neighbouring Rose Valley. Used water was returned to the Rose Valley to drive corn mills nearer the sea. The stamps mills were derelict by 1908 and are now very overgrown. One can be seen in this shot. [Source: Adam Sharpe.
