Poldark's Cornwall

Poldark's Cornwall

We really enjoyed watching BBC's Poldark adaptation that started this weekend. Not only was the drama gripping it was such a wonderful display of Cornwall's stunning rugged coast and history.

Sometimes we find that people know much less of this other side of Cornwall besides all the lovely beaches, pasties and ice cream.

Just a short journey down the winding West Penwith coastline takes you far away from the crowds of St Ives. The scenery of this relatively unexplored, yet very accessible area of Cornwall is breathtaking. The landscapes are littered with relics of the mining industry – derelict engine houses rise up as an iconic reminder of an industry and livelihood of a bygone era. The towering coastline is carved out of the cliffs, corroded from centuries of battling with the fearless elements. Even with the naked eye the sea-scape is almost a carbon print of a map of the country – plain to see that this is where the land ends and the sea begins. 

The location managers for Poldark couldn't resist the beauty of this area linking Botallack and Levant. The Levant mine played the role of the fictional Tressiders Rolling Mill and Owles and Crowns near Botallack starred as Ross Podlark's Wheal Leisure.

We highly recommend that you come and soak up the beauty and history for yourself.
