Cornish Man Engine

Man Engine Arrives in Liskeard

Crowds packed Liskeard Town Centre on Tuesday 26th July 2016 to witness the unveiling of the largest mechanical puppet ever built!

Standing in at over 10 metres tall and weighing in at over 40 tonnes this Cornish giant is helping celebrate the "tinth" anniversary of Cornish Mining World Heritage and of some of the people involved in Cornish mining throughout the ages.

Liskeard Chamber of Commerce helped sponsor the event and several businesses reported a welcomed trade boost.

This year, Liskeard Chamber of Commerce are promoting engineering as a career path - working closely with local schools, colleges and multi-national engineering companies who are able to offer suitable apprenticeships.

Thanks to all, locals and visitors alike, who helped make this a hugely successful event.
