A Liskeard mining area map

Maps are amazing, they jam so much knowledge about the past and the present into such a small space. I have no doubt that this blog will keep dashing down rabbit holes of maps-here is another one!   No apologies for the diversion.


This a copy of a map I produced for the interactive CD-ROM ‘The Liskeard Mining District in 1863‘. It is based on a wonderful piece of Victorian cartography, Brenton Symon’s 1863 map. Each of the mine setts is colour coded to indicate the status in 1863, forming a patchwork of colours across the landscape reflecting the mineral wealth beneath.
