Cornish mine museum gets HLF grant
The Grade II King Edward Mine Museum near Camborne in Cornwall has been awarded a Your Heritage grant of £35,700 by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The grant has been match-funded with £10,000 from Cornwall Council and £2,477 from the Rural Development Programme for England.
The King Edward Mine (KEM) is the oldest complete mine site left in Cornwall and the funding will support the development of a larger programme of events and activities for families, local people and schools.
