More than £1 million will be spent to safeguard Cornwall's oldest complete mine.

Cash from the Heritage Lottery Fund will protect the core buildings at King Edward in Pool.

There will be a new cafe and community hub too.

It is right next door to Heartlands but says it won't be competing with the site.

Tony Brooks is a trustee of the charity that runs the site.

He said: "We believe the success of Heartlands will help us, people will go to Heartlands in the general sense, maybe get enthused by what they see, and then come over to us, and that was one of the objectives of Heartlands in the beginning, to be a gateway centre to the other sites.

"We have an operating plant, we can show people how things work, and people I think get a real educational experience, the feedback from our visitors is amazingly positive, one visitor described our site as uniquely excellent."
