Manchester Comes To Wheal Jane
The interest in Wheal Jane to university students has been further extended with a visit by a group of architecture students from Manchester University.
A recommendation from Exeter University’s Environmental and Sustainability Institute, whose students visit Wheal Jane every year, led to this first visit by students from Manchester and the first from a group studying architecture.
The students, on a field trip looking at the effects of mining on the architecture of Cornwall, were, after a presentation and tour, able to appreciate how the legacy of mining on the site is being transformed to provide economic benefit and job creation as well as restoration, remediation and a sustainable future for the site.
