Miners Cottages in Minions
Miners Cottages in Minions
With the discovery of major copper lodes on the flanks of Caradon Hill and the establishment of mining along with granite quarrying and a railway in mid 19th century this remote moorland suddenly became an industrial boom area with shanty settlements springing up as workers moved into the area, mostly from west Cornwall. The village of Minions, originally known as "Cheesewring Railway" was one of the villages built as a more permanent replacement for temporary shacks. Photographed here is a row of workers cottages in the village.
