I was at Geevor in 2010, and I found the Dry very unsettling. In a good way--it was probably my favourite part of the museum. The idea of those clothes and boots and shirts hanging there for twenty-one years, waiting for the men to come back...there was something both touching and haunting about it.

The original substation was the building that is now the mine shop. 11,000 Volt power via underground cable from the Trewellard substation did not happen until the mid 1970's

The 11,000 Volt three phase power lines (two sets) from Hayle to Geevor were known as "Geevor black" & "Geevor white"
