TUESDAY: COAST/PUB WALK
After the talks finish on Thurday, Barry Wills will be leading a 3.25 mile walk along the coast and around Pendennis Point and ending up in the Chain Locker - a 16th century inn, believed to be one of Falmouth’s oldest buildings. Here you will meet up with Jon and Amanda who will have a pint of Cornish ale waiting for you*.
* or whatever other drink you would like!
SATURDAY: WALKING WITH POLDARK
On Saturday June 15th, delegates and partners staying on in Falmouth are invited to join Walking with Poldark, organised by Cornish Lithium, a wonderful 6 mile walk on Cornwall’s rugged north coast, in the area where most of the mining scenes for the BBC series Poldark was filmed.
We will be picked up from the National Maritime Museum on Saturday morning and coached to the extreme west of Cornwall. The walk commences at the old Geevor Mine, passing Levant Mine, then proceeds along the coast to the famous Crowns engine houses at Botallack, passing the ruins of the ‘buddles’, stamps and arsenic works and the ruin of the Wheal Owles engine house, where most of the mining activity in the TV series was filmed. This is the area of Cornwall’s submarine mines, which worked far out under the Atlantic Ocean.
We then continue to Cape Cornwall, where the coach will be waiting for us to take us to Zennor for lunch in the local inn. In the afternoon it is hoped to arrange an underground tour of an old 19th century tin mine.
Cost: There will be a nominal fee of £25 for this day out, collectable on the coach.
