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.
Book: Please complete the booking form
