Description: Kenton Marsh, 1 m. SW of Bowithick, Altarnun. Looking W. Stream tin deposit. Photograph of the small waterfall and escape trough, the whole called 'the Tie'. The material dug out is taken in barrows and thrown under the fall, where it is forked over and the Tieman (figure shown). The fine mud, peat etc. flows through the trough. The larger lumps of rock are taken out with the fork seen in Tieman's hand, and any large bits of wolfram picked out. The finest one rests on the wooden trough; the rest remains near the fall mixed with fine gravel.
