Barry Simpson Collection

The Barry Simpson Collection

A collection of old photographs of Restronguet Creek.
The late Barry Simpson lived adjacent to the creek, close to Devoran. As a local historian he wrote many fascinating articles about the area. By kind permission of Carol Simpson, his book, Devoran - a Different Cornish Village, is published here. It charts the history of the village, in particular the mining heritage of the Industrial Revolution which resulted in the development of Devoran and, ultimately, the designation of the World Heritage Site along the Tram to Point.
