Wheal Peevor in Redruth


Explore the impressive shells of three historic engine houses and learn about Cornwall’s once prosperous mining industry.

Wheal Peevor in Redruth was once one of the most important tin mining sites in the country, with no less than 12 mine shafts and three towering engine houses. Today, the whole site has been made safe for visitors to explore the ruins and relics of a once prosperous industry. The enormous shells of the engine houses dominate the skyline north of Redruth; from here, visitors can enjoy far reaching views of the Cornish countryside.

Wheal Peevor is an excellent place to get out and enjoy a walk whilst also learning a bit about Cornwall's mining heritage. Information boards inside the engine houses help explain the inner workings of the mines and what it was like to work here.

The fabulous Coast-to-Coast Mineral Tramway cycle path can be easily accessed from here - in fact, why not make Wheal Peevor a short detour from your journey? It's a great spot for a picnic on a sunny day! As well as the tramway, there are a number of other routes and pathways to explore the surrounding area which lead back here.

The site is owned by Cornwall Council and free to visit all year round. For more information, please visit the website.
