Quay & countryside
Cotehele Quay was a thriving area during Victorian times. For hundreds of years the River Tamar was the principal access route to the estate. The stone lime kilns and old buildings help tell the story of this once-booming industrial hub. Pop into the Discovery Centre to learn about the Quay’s history.
Shamrock is a Tamar sailing barge built in 1899. During her working career she carried cargo up and down the river. Her goods included manure, coal, limestone, sand and fertiliser. She's one of the last of these barges to survive. Come and see her in port and look for open days when you can climb aboard.
