Imagineers a creative project taking place in the Camborne Pool and Redruth area during the summer of 2008.

Part of this project this evening is recreating the landscape of times past by lighting fires in engine houses across the great flat load, once the richest square mile on the planet.

Crowds gather at King Edward mine Troon, to witness this trip back in time.

Smoke is seen coming from the first engine house and a roar from the crowd standing in the summer sunshine perfect for the event.

More chimneys are lit...

And more in the distance...

The chimney is lit at King Edward, whilst inside the building demonstrations are being given by ex miners.
