Poldark Tin Mines

The Poldark Tin Mines in Cornwall is an area of unique historical significance, with evidence for an alluvial - where ore is deposited in the run off soil of a stream or river - dating to prehistoric times. It is also the site of the first recorded tin stamps, a form of coinage used in Britain, in the year of 1493. These historical gems, combined with the site being home to an 18th century tin mine make Poldark one of the most important heritage sites in Cornwall, and indeed it has now been granted the title of World Heritage Site.

The site, once the scene of so much intense industrial activity, now boasts beautiful idyllic surroundings, complete with stunning gardens which offer visitors a chance to experience nature in what was once an area much polluted by the industry it is so famous for. Aside from the pleasant scenery, there are craft workshops run by local craft persons, including jewellers, pottery makers, candle makers, ceramics and wood turners. These all combine to make Poldark Cornwall's most popular heritage site by far.

Poldark is however not actually publically funded and instead is an independant site, rescued from receivers in 2000 by a group of local mining heritage enthusiasts. Visitors here can expect to receive a tour of the mine giving a unique insight into the working conditions of the 18th and early 19th century miners.

It is the only complete and working underground mine open to the public in the Cornwall and Devon area.
