Now, the colossal miner is preparing for his Resurrection Tour across Cornwall and west Devon, before he drives further, into Somerset, South Wales and up to the north of England.

On Saturday 31st March 2018, The Man Engine will re-appear where he was last seen at Geevor Tin Mine in West Penwith. He then heads east to Heartlands on Easter Sunday 1st April, with a visit to the Royal Cornwall Showground at Wadebridge on Easter Monday 2nd April. He crosses the Tamar to Tavistock on Tuesday 3rd April before heading up country to Radstock, South Wales, Shropshire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
