Lauren started working with Geevor Tin Mine on the development of a new website from October 2018, managing the project from developing a brief to appointing an agency, from copywriting through to final delivery.

Geevor Tin Mine is a real heritage gem in Cornwall, the largest preserved mine site in the country. It is a former 20th century working mine which closed for good in 1990 and now operates as a visitor attraction and heritage centre on Cornwall’s Tin Coast. The Hard Rock Museum tells the story of the Cornish tin and copper mining industry, with many former miners working at the mine providing an invaluable insight into what life was like working in the mines in Cornwall. A highlight for many visitors is the underground trip into 18th century Wheal Mexico Mine located within the Geevor area.

Geevor is set on the dramatic Cornish north coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are wonderful coastal scenes and spectacular views from all across the site, and the South West Coastal Path passes right by this wonderful heritage attraction.

 It is an important part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site, recognised by UNESCO in 2006. In 2007/8 Geevor was the subject of a £3.8m improvement programme funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, Objective One, Cornwall Council and Penwith District Council.
