In 1771 Richard Trevithick was born in Illogan, a village just outside Redruth, in the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage site. Trevithick was the creator of the 'Cornish Engine', an invention that allowed for the pumping of water from great depths that made deep mine workings throughout the world possible. The Redruth/Camborne area became the centre of world mining, and after the decline of the tin mines there was a massive diaspora of Cornish miners. Even today it is said that you will find a Cornish miner at the bottom of every mine in the world. Just over the hill from Redruth, as you travel towards Falmouth, you come to the village of Lanner, with the remains of engine houses and other mine workings scattered around. This original artwork is painted with acrylics on a stretched canvas. The sides have been painted and it is ready to hang or can be framed. The painting comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which has been signed by the artist. It is also available as an open edition Giclee print.
