The South West Coast Path is the longest of Britain’s National Trails, following the spectacular coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England from Somerset all the way to Dorset. This volume of the Official National Trail Guide, published in association with Natural England, features the second section of 169 miles (271 km), from Padstow in north Cornwall to Falmouth on the south coast. From the surfing mecca of Newquay and St Ives’s golden beaches it hugs the rugged clifftops round Land’s End and the Lizard – as far west and south as it is possible to go in Britain – visiting serpentine harbours and craggy coves such as Cadgwith and Porthcurno with its dramatic open-air theatre. Besides truly wild sea-life like seals and fulmars, the Path offers the only chance anywhere in the country to see the delightful red-beaked chough. For the holiday stroller or the long-distance walker, this official guide contains everything you need. This new edition has been fully updated and revised, and completely re-designed with many new photographs, for 2013. It features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps for the whole route.

Cornwall is acknowledged internationally as the home of hard-rock mining and the cradle of the steam engine. The rich mineral deposits with which the county is historically endowed created the desire to seek the knowledge and skills to discover and mine them. Tin and copper were the most abundant metals to be found in their mineral form, though various metals such as lead, silver, zinc, to name but a few, were also mined in significant amounts. The landscape is dotted with the remains of former mine workings where tin and other minerals still exist. At the present time a number of mining companies are carrying out exploratory work due to the rising demand for metals. As part of a West of England mining field, the Hemerdon Wolfram mine in Devon is planning to be in production in the enar future, In this book, the latest in a series on Cornish mining history, the author protrays a photographic account of a group of mines in the Central Mining District, including the famous Dolcoath mine. This well-annotated volume, drawn from the Trounson-Bullen Collection, will be welcomed by all those with an interest in mining in the county of Cornwall.
