Went for several nice walks around the old engine houses. the walk is dog friendly with poo bins at the start of the walk. Here's a car park opposite the entrance. Useful information boards on past mining activity. Great views.

A well preserved mine site. Would recommend a visit as there are few sites with as many engine houses in one place. Great views over the Redruth mining area too.

How can pet owners allow such a wonderful historic place be spoilt by not clearing up after them? I'm not talking the odd pile, it is everywhere and in vast amounts. Anyone who is local and reading this really must campaign to put an end...More

Interesting site with sign boards explaining the site and processes. Be careful, this is not a play area, there are plenty of trip and slip hazards. Good place for taking pictures although not the easiest place to get the perfect angle. There is a small...More
