St Agnes Head Picture 1

The engine houses perched on the cliff edge at St Agnes Head give a sense of the scale of the mining industry. In Poldark the area was used to represent the Nampara Valley, part of Poldarks’ family estate.  Winston Graham lived and wrote close by at Perranporth. Walk out from the car park and head for the coastguards lookout, then walk west towards Wheal Coates, one of the most photographed spots in Cornwall.
