Wheal Uny near Redruth


New member
I'm popping down to Cornwall for a weeks holiday with the family but I'm hoping to disappear for a couple of hours underground.
I've heard that Wheal Uny is near to where we're staying and fancy a bit of a nosey.
I have found the mine on Google earth and found out that it has several shafts that have been capped by local councils.

Could someone on here please let me know where the entrance is that allows access to the 20ft laddered slope ie GPS or directions.

Many thanks  ;)
