We had a week in Cornwall last month and we liked to go out and about in the Redruth area. Wheal Peavor was a good walk, excellent views and very evocative of the bye gone days of tin mining.

Interesting place and as others have said it's a nice walk with a dog except for others who don't clean up after their dogs. Perhaps there should be a dog poo alert app similar to those who park badly in Cornwall. Which leads me to...More

Lovely place for walking although rather spoilt by dog poo. Beautiful and as long or short as you want. Beautiful nature area with lots of old mining buildings to explore

This old mine site has been conserved and is interesting to look around. There are no facilities there, just the 3 engine houses and some other building remains. Although there are signs on the main road it is not easy to get to. Mind you...More

Lovely area for dog walking. Great veiws and information boards about mines. Shame not all dog walkers are responsible and pick up after their dogs!

A well preserved mine site. Would recommend a visit as there are few sites with as many engine houses in one place. Great views over the Redruth mining area too.

How can pet owners allow such a wonderful historic place be spoilt by not clearing up after them? I'm not talking the odd pile, it is everywhere and in vast amounts. Anyone who is local and reading this really must campaign to put an end...More

Free Parking; This has tracks rather than paths that are fairly uneven and a bit hilly. Lovely countryside and great for kids to explore.
