From my collection of Cornish myth postcards...
"The Knockers, or Buccas, are goblins of the mines. Their picks are heard tapping at the rich lodes which the miners seek. But the mocking sounds of labour and laughter come now from this way, now that.
Buccas also fuss about just out of sight in the old, disused workings and adits, and they are mighty smart at getting in a dig at those who would meddle with them!"
