The Official Guide to the Cornwall & West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site is out now


Geology & Mining







The Official Guide to the Cornwall & West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site is a guide put together by the World Heritage Site Office.

Aimed to be enjoyed by those of all ages, with all levels of mining knowledge; the Official Guide has been created by the team to raise awareness and help to fund the ongoing conservation and protection of the UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.

The Cornwall and West Devon World Heritage Site covers ten areas in two counties and is the largest industrial World Heritage Site in the UK. The Official Guide gives an overview of sites to see, attractions to visit and even where to stop for something to eat and drink in each area.

The book followed a truly local approach and even called on the skills of Cornish young person and passionate reader Amy Homes to give some feedback, she is credited in the book as proof-reader.

Alongside historic and cultural background and beautiful photography of the landscape this guide is aimed to be a helpful and informative keepsake to anyone with a love of Cornwall’s mining heritage or Cornwall in general with the added bonus of funds raised from the book going towards supporting the conservation and protection of the landscape!

During October half term, to herald the launch, copies of the book were hidden in the ten areas that make up the World Heritage Site and clues were given to their locations, turning the launch into a treasure hunt through the mining heritage of Cornwall and West Devon:

St Just; Hayle, St Agnes; Wendron; Camborne & Redruth; Gwennap; Tregonning & Gwinear, Luxulyan & Charlestown; Caradon; and Tamar Valley & Tavistock

The Guide is available to buy in mining attractions around Cornwall and all good bookshops in Cornwall including Waterstones in Truro.
