An easy walk on the South West Coast Path through a patchwork landscape of tiny fields bounded by ancient stone walls and dotted with iconic mine chimneys and engine houses such as the Botallack Count House and the world-famous Levant Beam Engine.

Although the weather wasn't great , we enjoyed our day here. The National trust rep was helpful and knowledgeable and the site has a nice little teashop. Nice day out.
