Industrial history and significance

Consideration should be given to an integrated designation approach (including listing, conservation areas and scheduling) to quarries and other related sites in and further afield from Delabole. The standing buildings, current workings, sites of dumps, former workings, the links to the settlement, links to ports on the north coast, the railways etc., all formed an integrated system, several hundred years in the making, and today unique in its scale and character in Cornwall and the wider region. Wider interpretative, designation, and management schemes encompassing a considerable area around Delabole should be considered.
