A Walking Guide to the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site suggests ten walks in nine of the Areas that comprise the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site, each played a major part in the development of Britain as a great industrial nation. Natural resources and human skill, ingenuity and labour were equal factors in this contribution. Today, the ten Areas offer the visitor natural beauty and a rich heritage of the mining industry that was once so important to the nation; they combine to produce a fascinating landscape. The walks are suitable for all the family and none are strenuous. The route of each walk is overlaid onto stunning aerial photography, showing walkers the landscape and features, followed by a description of each walk and information about the area. As well as the walks there are details of places to explore and attractions to visit – all you need for a memorable day out! Come and explore dramatic cliffs, golden beaches, hidden valleys and beautiful countryside, and learn about the endeavours of the miners, engineers, surface workers and 'mineral lords', as well as about the natural processes that endowed the land with such mineral wealth. It is an amazing story!
