Poldark Mine Tunnels

The Poldark Mine just outside Helston in Cornwall is well worth a visit, and I can recommend the tour of the mine tunnels to anyone with even a vague interest in geology, mining or industrial history.

Their website has a detailed description of the mine workings, including a number of sketches showing the tunnel layout. To give them some additional context, I've overlaid them on the local landscape in Google Earth.

Many thanks to Richard Williams of Poldark Mines for his kind permission to use the map images.
