The human face of Cornish mining
Housed in a former chapel of rest, the collection tells the story of the parish of St Agnes, its history and its people, from mining to fishing. Highlights include portraits by John and Edward Opie, a huge leatherback turtle, and the Whitworth Collection depicting five generations of local village doctors from one family.
