King Edward Mine

The oldest complete mine site in Cornwall

King Edward Mine Museum in Troon, near Camborne specialises in the history of Cornish mining, telling the remarkable story of how the mine has survived for 100 years. In the tin processing mill machinery can be seen in action just as it would have been in the early 1900s. The Mineral Tramways cycle trail passes nearby connecting up the mine with a wealth of other heritage and leisure sites.

King Edward Mine now has two new trail guides for adults and children respectively, and please click on the following links to view these:
