About the Image

South Wheal Frances is a former copper and tin mine on the Great Flat Lode, just south of Camborne, Cornwall, and was the largest of the four setts that eventually amalgamated under the umbrella of Basset Mines Ltd.

Mining began in the local area in the early 1720s and by the early 20th century, several thousand men, women, bal maidens and children worked in the mine, however a slump in tin prices during World War I led to the mine's closure in 1918.
