Industrial history and significance
The mining areas around Botallack and Truthwall are some of the earliest, longest lived and best known in Cornwall. Here can be seen the effects on a pre-industrial topography and settlement pattern of almost the full range of recorded mining history, with at least three periods of growth discernible, and markedly different rates of survival -Truthwall in particular is now a much smaller settlement than during the peak period of industrial activity in the mid 19th century.
This settlement forms part of the proposed Cornwall & west Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site Bid, and is considered an important part of the context for the Bid.
