Cornish Mining Man Engine


Don't miss the Man Engine as it travels through Cornwall

This is the UK's largest ever mechanical puppet built to mark the tenth anniversary of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape being added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.  It's the same height as a double decker bus when in its "crawling mode" but almost three times that height when stood up.

The puppet is travelling throughout Cornwall over the next week or so - to see where it's going, and when, go to the Man Engine website.  It will be in Penzance at 5pm on Friday 5th August.
