Blue Hills Mine, Cornwall
Blue Hills raised 2,117 tons of Black Tin between 1858 and 1897, with its best years being between 1886 and 1891. Wheal Betsy meanwhile, returned 45 tons of black tin between 1839 and 1861. Blue Hills was abandoned in 1897. An attempt to rework the mine in 1926 came to nothing.
Blue Hills Mine featured in the first series of the original BBC TV Series Poldark in the 1970s.
During the 1990s a set of water powered Cornish Stamps which existed on the site were restored and are now operated as part of the Blue Hills Tin Streams a visitor attraction and craft centre producing gifts made of local tin.
