Artist's Description

The Lemon Arms Mylor Bridge Cornwall at Christmas time. All the lights are on and the pub is looking very festive.

The ancient Manors of Restronguet, Trythance and Trewothack Mylor; St. Keverne, St. Anthony-in-Meneage were purchased 1786 by Sir William Lemon, son of a very successful miner, also called William.
William the elder is said to have worked in the local mines, soon becoming manager of a tin-smelting house at Chyandour near Penzance. In partnership with Mr. George Blewett and Mr. Dewen of Marazion, he began working a mine on Lord Godolphin’s land, called Wheal Fortune.
Wheal Fortune provided Mr. Lemon with a fortune said to be £10,000; he moved to Truro, and started working mines in the parish of Gwennap. He soon became one of the principal tin smelters and merchants in the county.
