This is such a great find John... it's like Harvey Hale did most of the work during the industrial revolution... what a great sign....petersmile
John Prior: Harvey's foundry (1779-1903) did build some of the largest steam engines in the world that were also exported to places like Australia and the USA. Quite a few surviving still in Mexico apparently. The background shot is part of the old foundry.

And why I wonder are we not all thronging to this place? I remember it as having fine beaches and a delightful railway viaduct
John Prior: Yes some lovely beaches all part of St Ive's Bay. I found this pdf online, the place does seem a little under celebrated as it did play an important role.
