Out and about at Botallack
What to see this Spring at Botallack.
Blow away the cobwebs
Stretch your legs and explore the Tin Coast. Part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage site, walk through history as you wander between pumping and engine houses of Wheal Owles and Wheal Edwards, past chimney stacks and the winding labyrinth of the arsenic tunnels along the coast path.
Find out more
Open year round, Botallack Count House Workshop has information about the history of Botallack's mining, guides on local walks as well as a cafe serving hot drinks, cakes and pasties. Open 10am – 5pm you can always pop in to reserve a pasty before your walk to pick up later.
Binoculars at the ready
There’s plenty of wildlife to spot, gannets plunging into the sea, fulmars nesting near the Crowns cliffs and choughs calling to their mates as the swoop.
The blur of bluebells on the cliffs or the silhouette of the chimneys and engine houses as the sun goes down. Botallack has so many opportunities to get some fantastic photos.
