The buildings are a reminder of Carnewas' industrial past when iron, copper and lead was mined from the cliffs. Please note that the shop and café are now closed for the winter. The café will be open from 27 December until early January 2017. The café, shop and visitor centre at Boscastle, a little further north along the coast, remains open all year (apart from Christmas day).
