The Tin Coast stretches from Cape Cornwall to Pendeen Watch, the end of mainland Britain. It began with nature’s creation of abundant riches. Mining from the medieval to the modern era left a lengthy industrial legacy, scars scraped into the ground and towers built to house powerful engines. These monuments to toil teach us much about human determination and delight us with their romantic dereliction. On the Tin Coast you can find solitude or adventure, and reflect on a landscape that drove such determination and innovation.
With breath-taking photography throughout, original bird’s-eye artwork and a fascinating narrative that encompasses thousands of years of history, this guidebook uncovers the attractions that drew and continues to draw people to this spectacular stretch of coast. From the treasure trove of minerals that drove human ingenuity literally to the earth’s end, to the wealth of natural beauty to be found today above ground, Clare Gogerty’s guide to the Tin Coast is itself a mine of information.
