Webb and Geach Explored-North Wrey and Julia

wreandjuliasymonsThis post looks at another of the small unsuccessful mines described within the pages of   Webb and Geach.

That book refers to the mine as ‘ North Wrey and Julia, but Brenton Symons’ 1863 map has the shorter ‘Wrey and Julia’  label.

“This small mine was worked some time since by a portable engine, to try a north and south lead lode……” Webb and Geach page 100

Ordnance Survey 1883

Cornwall XXVIII.SE (includes: St Cleer; St Ive.)
Surveyed: 1882 Published: 1883

No evidence of an y workings shown in the location indicated by Symons apart from a possible disturbance (Shaft?) on the north face of the short NE’ly running field boundary wall. ‘Trebeigh Mine’ is shown close west of the site however.
