Great Treverbyn or The Cornish Alps in St Austell, Cornwall, England. They are manmade mounds up to 300ft high that have dominated the skyline since the 19th century. The miniature mountains are a relic of the area's industrial past, spoil heaps thrown up by hundreds of years of mining for china clay
