FIVE local primary schools put together an inspirational event to celebrate the ‘Tinth Anniversary’ of Cornwall being a part of the Mining World Heritage Site on July 5.

Delaware, Gunnislake, Upton Cross, Pensilva and Coads Green primary schools showcased art, drama, dance and music to celebrate the anniversary at Sterts Theatre at Upton Cross.

In July 2006, the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

To mark this remarkable achievement, the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site Partnership has commissioned an exciting summer-long set of inspirational events and experiences for a Tinth Anniversary programme.

Every one of the ten areas of the UK’s largest World Heritage Site will host a wide variety of events that focus on Cornwall and West Devon’s world changing industrial innovations.
