Tolgus Tin/Sten Talgos

On 4th October members of Agan Tavas and others visited Tolgus Tin which is part of the Cornish Gold Centre near Redruth. The site is a 'stream works' and it has everything for extracting tin from tin slime or waste from mines or the beach. The machinery includes; shaking tables, a round frame and Cornish stamps driven by a water wheel. As a part of the Tolgus site is the Redruth Old Cornwall Society museum which was removed a few years ago from Redruth Town Council's rooms. It's very interesting with it's memories of old Redruth. We were grateful to Vanessa Moyle who prepared a cream tea as part of the visit. There was a competition, in Cornish of course, and a vocabulary for those walking around. The winner of the competition was Peter Jenkin. Following the tour some of those that came took lunch in the restaurant at the Cornish Gold Centre. The food was very good!

With the permission of the Cornish Language Board, this is the second edition of the book in Unified Cornish with an English translation. Graham Sandercock did a great amount of work on the first edition and there is further editing in this edition by Ray Chubb. It has been kept in the same form as the first edition because there are good remaining stocks of the first and third books.
