Hayle Heritage Centre

2015 is going to be an exciting year
for the centre with an expansion
planned, and lots of new artefacts on
display. Some of the new artefacts
that will go on display have been
kindly donated to the centre by Mr
and Mrs Barnicoat, whose great-
grandfather, William Barnicoat, was
an engineer who served his appren-
ticeship with Harvey & Co in 1865.
William’s tools which he would
have made at the Foundry as an
apprentice will be on display as will
an invention of his early protractor
level (a picture of which you can see
with this article). The Barnicoats
have also generously loaned to the
centre a model of a beam engine
which Richard Barnicoat made
during his time as a lecturer at
Camborne Technical College.
