Industrial history and significance

Carnyorth was an old established agricultural hamlet which had an entirely new mining settlement (Carnyorth Terrace) attached to it. This remains one of the least altered of all mining settlements in the study area, while Falmouth Place remains a uniquely isolated and inward-looking place, almost entirely of the 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.
