A coloured postcard of Trenear Dairy, Wendron, taken around 1930-1940. The Trenear Dairy Company began in the 1880s until 1972. It was housed in the old Wendron Consols Mine stamping mill. This was where the tin ore was crushed and purified. The Trenear Dairy Company Limited used the old mine waterwheel to drive the machinery for making butter and cheese. The dairy later became part of Unigate and the waterwheel was used to produce electricity.
