Walking inside tunnels dug over 3,500 years ago offers tourists a sense of the terrible circumstances our ancient forefathers endured in their quest for copper.
Return to the surface by following the paths that go around the surface excavations. View the opencast mine, learn how their forefathers converted rock into metal in the smelting shelter, and gaze down the 145-meter-deep Victorian mine shaft.
You will also be taken on a tour of the opencast mine, which is the oldest section of the site, having been mined over 4,000 years ago. Do you have any questions? One of the original excavation crew members will be on hand to answer any questions.
