This photo was donated by Geoff Jones, who is a member of the Knowles family of Grampound. It is probably late 19th or early 20th century and the location is thought to be Bosillion Lane. It shows coppiced oak being harvested prior to having its bark stripped to make tanning liquor for the Manor Tannery.
