In 2006 selected mining landscapes across Cornwall and west Devon were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, placing Cornish mining heritage on a par with international treasures like Machu Pichu, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.

Ten separate Areas make up the World Heritage Site, each has its own character and opportunities for adventure. The largest World Heritage Site in the UK, with over 20,000 hectares spread across Cornwall and west Devon, it offers myriad experiences to explore our world-changing mining culture.

The mining story is set against one of the most spectacular backdrops imaginable – a strikingly beautiful coastline, rugged moors, idyllic countryside, lush river valleys, and bustling towns and harbours.
