Description: Lantern China-clay Works, near Rescorla, St. Austell. Looking SW. View of lower part of clay-pit. This photograph, taken down in the pit, shows the stream of water, by which the clay is washed out of the decomposed granite travelling down the stope and from thence through the sand-pits to the 'bottom hole launder', whence it is pumped to the surface. The sand-pits are only partly visible in the photograph, but the annexed diagram shows the direction of flow of the water.
