Event map

Artist Anthony Bryant and local mining historian Stephen Polglase will lead a field trip from Rinsey to Porthleven.


The walk will combine personal perspective with Anthony and Stephen’s profound knowledge of the area. It will focus in depth on the history and geology of Wheal Prosper Mine and its iconic engine house situated on the cliff tops of Rinsey, Wheal Trewavas mine perched precariously on the cliffs to the east of Trewavas Head and Tremearne beach. The field trip sets out to develop an enhanced understanding of this dramatic section of coast path.

The walk will take approximately four hours and covers varied terrain – please bring suitable clothing, sturdy footwear and a packed lunch. As this is not a circular walk, the workshop leaders will coordinate transport between the finishing point at the Ship Inn, Porthleven back to the start at Rinsey car park.

Places are limited, please email info@anthonybryant.co.uk if you are interested in participating.
