Cornish Mines


New member
Does anyone know where I could get a survey for Cligga Head mine on the north coast of Cornwall?  :confused:

I'd like to do a trip in the next few weeks before I get wed and I have to go on holiday for a month  ;)

Can't find one anywhere  :-\

"Tin Miner" of the Devon Mine Club has one, sadly their website is down atm.
He posts/ visits Aditnow and Mine-Explorer fairly regularly I believe.
The trip is reasonably straight forward, and can be done without a survey. About 100' of rope is needed for the pitch from top to middle level. Bottom lavel can be reached via a stope from middle level
Good trip, enjoy!

I've done a not very accurate survey of Cligga which hasn't been published but I can give you verbal descriptions of any routes you want to do, or of any other mines in the area.

Great I'll try and track down Tin Miner I'll give you a shout Gus if I'm unsuccessful.

Thanks  (y)
