Botallack is a stunning example of the mines you can see all over the area. Perched on the cliff edge the buildings are very impressive. More impressive still, is that Botallack was a submarine mine with tunnels extending under the sea in places for half a mile. 14,500 tonnes of tin, 20,000 tonnes of copper, and 1,500 tonnes of arsenic has been dug out of the tunnels that extend from Botallack. All dug by hand by the hardy Cornish miners! The history of this place is fascinating and goes back to the Bronze Age.
