North Coast and the lizard
« on: September 09, 2020, 08:58:53 pm »
I'm heading to the lizard in a couple of weeks and then heading up the coast near St agnes and then to Bude. Any caves /mines that are worth poking your head into? I'll have room for most of my kit but not SRT gear so none SRT recommendations please 😁😁😁

I live in St Agnes, and there are a few good mines about, although the best are obviously SRT ones! xxxxxxxxxx fits the bill though, and is well worth a look. There's quite a bit about it online, but PM me if you want any more info :)

Contact the Carbis Bay Crew on Facebook. They took me down Wheal Luna at St. Agnes a few years ago.

Not a good idea to advertise!

My avatar is a poor likeness.

Sorry Roy, I'd hoped that just the name wouldn't be a problem. I've asked the moderators to redact it.


Global Moderator Comment I've redacted the mine name in above posts as requested.

Why on earth would you want to redact the name of a mine?

I respect Roy's expertise and knowledge of the region, so if he says it's a bad idea to advertise it then I trust his judgement.

The consensus west of the Tamar is that it is better to keep mines and mine exploration well off the radar.  The thinking being that if landowners learn that people are accessing mines on their property there is the potential that they will bulldoze entrances to reduce their liability.  There is a real "holes in the ground are bad" mentality in this part of the world.

So it seems impossible to get any true info. Anyone fancy taking me and a friend down a mine when we come down? I would really like to poke my head into some where. Especially as I'll be looking for caving clubs when I move down there

You might be better putting up a post on Aditnow.

Contact the Carbis Bay Crew, they have been very helpful to me, or the St. Just Mine Group one of whom took me into Geevor a while back.
