It's quite a while since I have done a Cornwall post for this blog, so that's what this is today - but not the normal sea and sunshine photos I usually publish. Today's six photos are from Cornwall's China Clay Industry.
China Clay was once very big business, and half of the world's supply came from Cornwall in the late 1800s. Since then it has somewhat declined but there is still clay being produced.
