Cot Valley

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Cot Valley leads from close to St Just town to the sea at Porth Nanven, or Penanwell as it is sometimes called, a tumbling stream rushes through a valley lush with vegetation.

The Cot Valley contains many relics of its former association with mining. It is believed that mining work was being carried on here as early as the Medieval period. The valley sides are dotted with mine shafts and other evidence of metal mining. The stream would have been dammed at one time to provide a stable source of water power for the tin dressing works which relied on it. A number of water mills operated in the valley.

One of the mills, at Wheal Bellan, was electrically powered at , a tin mine in the valley which extracted cassiterite ore (tin oxide) from veins in the lower part of the valley.
