Wheal Coates, Cornwall



Here are some photos taken yesterday in sunny Cornwall, which sadly it is no longer! Wheal Coates is a tin mine located between St Agnes and Chapelporth. We parked in a National Trust car park at Beacon Hill and walked along the beautiful coastal path where the Wheal Coates tin mine is located, all the way to Chapelporth beach. When we arrived there were people paragliding above the tin mines making for some fantastic shots, it looked like so much fun, such a peaceful and serene setting for a glide. We walked along the path until we arrived at Chapelporth beach where dogs weren’t allowed on the beach which was sad for Barney as he is a proper sea dog however, he got to have a paddle in the river where me and my boyfriend sat and had a delicious mango and lime delipop ice lolly from the cafe.

All in all, the walk was probably 2-3 miles but there were numerous different paths you could take to make your walk longer or shorter. It’s such a beautiful scenic route especially this time of year with all of the heather and gorse out making it a perfect thing to do on a sunny day.

Lots of love, Melissa x
