Friday May 11th afternoon 2.00pm: Wheal Trewavas. It has not been possible to organise parking closer to the site, so meet at the car park at the western end of Praa Sands (Castle Drive) TR20 9TZ / SW 577 282 at 1.30 sharp. We will then double-up in the cars and then park closer to the mine. NOTE: The walk from the car park will take about 30 minutes.

Friday May 11th 7.30pm: Talk on the SS Cornubia by Pete Joseph at the Count House Café, Geevor Tin Mine Heritage Centre TR19 7EW / SW 482 744. Meet 7pm.

Saturday May 12th morning: Rosevale Mine for underground trip. As there is very limited parking near the mine so meet 10am sharp at the car park in Zennor. TR26 3BY / SW 454 384.

IMPORTANT: The visit to Rosevale entails walking through dark, often narrow and low, levels and climbing 30 (100 feet) of ladders which will inevitably be wet and muddy. Sturdy boots are essential and gardening gloves will be useful.

OR

Botallack Mine for outdoors option. Meet at the car park next to the Count House at 10am TR19 7QQ / SW 365 333. Note that the National Trust now charges for parking here.
