Wheal's Memories

I grew up in Hayle during the 1960, 70.s and 80,s and know the area well. I once found a small ceramic bottle next to the main engine shaft; Gundry's Shaft; before it was capped and built over a few years ago. Incidentally, the cylinder bedstone for Gundry's Engine lies buried in the garden of one of the houses, left when the shaft was capped. There is still one open shaft in the rough ground in front of what was Tolroy Motors garage. I do recall seeing either a picture or a line drawing of Mellanear Row Cottages (opposite Tolroy Garage) before their demolition. I will try to remember where I saw this and let you know.
