Botallack Mine


Has anyone visited the Botallack Mine in Cornwall?

If so, could you please provide some advice on how to get to the car park for the walk that goes out to the ruins of the mine?\

Thank you very much!

Both Rick's England book (p. 372) and have basically this instruction:
Take the B3306 from St Ives or St Just to Botallack, take either turn into the village and where the two roads meet, take the track out to the coast. Parking available in the area just beyond the ruins near the Count House.

Google Maps also shows both the road and the coastal path.

Hi Laura,

Thank you very much for these instructions.

Turns out that I have previously read these very instructions both in Rick's book and at the National Trust web page. I am having alot of difficulty following these words on Google Maps, and was hoping that someone on this forum might have instructions that I could follow more easily.

I will take another very close look at Google Maps....I must be missing something.

Thank you very much for answering my request!!!
