UNESCO Cornish Mining World Heritage Site

Selected mining landscapes across Cornwall and west Devon have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Historic buildings, mine tours, wild landscapes, walks and cycle trails there’s something for everyone.

Well Cottage is just a few minutes drive away from the engine houses and mine workings of Caradon Hill. Extensive Cornish Mining sites exist around the Minions and Caradon Hill areas, where copper mining was at its height during the 1840s to the 1890s. At Minions, you can visit the Minions Heritage Centre, that now occupies the Engine House of Houseman’s Shaft, which was a part of the old South Phoenix Mine.

Ten separate Areas make up the World Heritage Site, each has its own character and opportunities for adventure. The largest World Heritage Site in the UK, with over 20,000 hectares spread across Cornwall and west Devon, it offers myriad experiences to explore our world-changing mining culture.

The mining story is set against one of the most spectacular backdrops imaginable – a strikingly beautiful coastline, rugged moors, idyllic countryside, lush river valleys, and bustling towns and harbours.


And then there’s Poldark!
