Poldark1Follow in the Footsteps Of 18th Century Cornish Tin Miners

In addition to its important heritage the site has a wide range of activities - search the Gemsands for diamonds and precious gemstones - pan for real alluvial gold - throw a pot at the potter's wheel -make a candle - try your hand at woodturning - wander through the museum - watch the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site video - make your own souvenir in the sands of Cornwall - have a snack in the Poldark cafe - play pool and other games in the games room - visit the Mine Shop and jeweller's workshop for a range of Poldark goods and real gemstone jewellery and faceted gemstones.

Unique prehistoric evidence of working for alluvial tin, the site of the first recorded tin stamps in the Duchy (1493) and its 18th century tin mine makes Poldark one of Cornwall’s most important heritage sites. Situated in the picturesque Wendron Valley, now a world heritage site, once the scene of intense industrial activity, the site’s attractive surroundings and gardens belie its industrial past.

Poldark is once again the scene of activity with craft workshops run by local crafts people including jewellers, candle makers, chandelier repairers, pottery makers and wood turners. Poldark is by far Cornwall's most popular mining heritage site.

An independent site, rescued from receivers in 2000 by local mining heritage - visit http://www.poldark-mine.co.uk/
