Gwennap pit is signed well, but needs some perseverance to actually get there in what can seem a maze of small narrow lanes. Limited opening of the chapel next to the pit but pit is always open- as a monument to the Cornish mining industry. and the place of Methodism in that culture. This is an iconic place for Cornwall,... 更多
Had been told so much about this place by my late sister and wasn't disappointed the place is very peaceful and steeped in history there is a lovely little visitor centre with a chapel and plenty of photographs ❤️plus a very informative staff member who told us lots. If you walk round and down every layer of the pit from... 更多

We went into the charming little chapel and had a nice chat with the volunteer lady at the small visitor centre. She just happened to be a Methodist minister and... 更多
I miss this place, It used to be clean and it was a lovely place to spend time with friends and go for dog walks. Now there is a lot of rubbish and dog poo. Havent been there in a while.

I found this place as a child and did not know of it's importance then. Coming back 40 years later glad to see it is now a world heritage site. Nice new visitor centre as well. For a passing visit on a dry day, allow an hour.
Cornwall is famous for it's coastline, but there are interesting things to discover inland. The Gwennap Pit is located near Lanner off the A393 from Redruth. The signposting to the Pit is minimal and is quite challenging along country lanes. Even when you discover the sign to the Pit, it is still quite a distance from the main village road.... 更多
This is an interesting insight into the early history of Methodism, even though the actual site is a reconstruction (though an old one!). The visitor centre is interesting, and the volunteer staff there knowledgeable. Finding it is a challenge, down country lanes with minimal signposting, but worth a detour.
