The conference was held at Morwellham Quay, the industrial museum based on a copper port on the river Tamar near Tavistock. The conference ran from Friday to Monday with tours of the site, local mines and even as far as Geevor in Cornwall. There was camping on site and a pub - excellent facilities all round!
