ENGINE HOUSE TOURS AT HEARTLANDS

Daily throughout the year

Heartlands, Robinson's Shaft, Dudnance Lane, Pool, Redruth, Cornwall TR15 3QY

West Cornwall

Great idea for a family day out in Cornwall. The pumping engine at Robinson's Shaft is a gloriously well preserved example of a Cornish engine. It worked at this site between 1903 and 1955. The engine was designed by Captain Samuel Grose, a pupil of Richard Trevithick, and was built by Sandys Vivian and Co. at the Copperhouse Foundry, one of the two major engineering works at Hayle. Robinson's Engine stopped working at 1.15pm on 1 May 1955, the last Cornish Engine to work on a Cornish Mine. Robinson's Engine is currently undergoing more restoration work (it's a bit like painting the Forth Bridge), but you can still go on guided tours to see this magnificent engine. Engine House tours are once a day at 12 noon. Please book your space on the tour at the Visitor Centre on arrival at Heartlands. Please note there are only 12 spaces per tour and a small fee applies. Heartlands is a top Cornwall visitor attraction, steeped in history. Read more about Heartlands

PUP SEASON AT THE CORNISH SEAL SANCTUARY

One of the great things to do in Cornwall in January is visit one of Cornwall's leading attractions, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

The BDMLR, the RSPCA and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary rescue between 40 and 60 pups each year. As the leading Seal Rescue Centre in Europe and the only one in Cornwall we then become home to these pups while they are rehabilitated until they are ready for release. The team here provides round-the-clock care throughout the 'pup rescue season' (usually September - March) to get them back to full health so they can go back out into the wild where they should be. Our hospital and pools will be full and it's the perfect time to for a visit. The Seal Sanctuary is dog friendly.

PUP SEASON AT THE CORNISH SEAL SANCTUARY

February 2017

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Gweek, Helston, Cornwall TR12 6UG

West Cornwall

One of the great things to do half term in Cornwall 2017 is visit one of Cornwall's leading attractions, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Seal mating season begins around September time, this also coincides with rougher seas and storms approaching. What this means is that during this time we get a lot of seal pup call outs. The BDMLR, the RSPCA and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary rescue between 40 and 60 pups each year. As the leading Seal Rescue Centre in Europe and the only one in Cornwall we then become home to these pups while they are rehabilitated until they are ready for release. The team here provides round-the-clock care throughout the 'pup rescue season' (usually September - March) to get them back to full health so they can go back out into the wild where they should be. Our hospital and pools will be full and it's the perfect time to for a visit. The Seal Sanctuary is dog friendly attraction in Cornwall.

ENGINE HOUSE TOURS AT HEARTLANDS

Daily throughout the year

Heartlands, Robinson's Shaft, Dudnance Lane, Pool, Redruth, Cornwall TR15 3QY

West Cornwall

Great idea for a family day out in Cornwall. The pumping engine at Robinson's Shaft is a gloriously well preserved example of a Cornish engine. It worked at this site between 1903 and 1955. The engine was designed by Captain Samuel Grose, a pupil of Richard Trevithick, and was built by Sandys Vivian and Co. at the Copperhouse Foundry, one of the two major engineering works at Hayle. Robinson's Engine stopped working at 1.15pm on 1 May 1955, the last Cornish Engine to work on a Cornish Mine. Robinson's Engine is currently undergoing more restoration work (it's a bit like painting the Forth Bridge), but you can still go on guided tours to see this magnificent engine. Engine House tours are once a day at 12 noon. Please book your space on the tour at the Visitor Centre on arrival at Heartlands. Please note there are only 12 spaces per tour and a small fee applies. Heartlands is a top Cornwall visitor attraction, steeped in history. Read more about Heartlands

And what could be better than finishing the day with one of our famous Regatta Teas on Loe Beach, and maybe even pick up a prize!". We also have newly revised courses, with all racing now taking place in the top of the Carrick Roads. Regatta Teas are available from the marquee after the race.

Community event in Cornwall clearing the beach at Tregantle of microplastics.

The MoD contractors focus on removing the large pieces of plastic waste, so let's see what we can do about picking up as much as possible of this tiny stuff. If you can, please bring a dustpan and brush - one of the best ways of picking up this stuff (as long as you brush gently and don't get panfuls of sand!!). We'll bring some sieves and tubs too. Meet at 2pm at the gate from the road down to the beach. All equipment provided (apart from pans and brushes!) The forecast is looking pretty grim but your help would be much appreciated if you can spare an hour! http://www.ramepbc.org

PUP SEASON AT THE CORNISH SEAL SANCTUARY

February 2016

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Gweek, Helston, Cornwall TR12 6UG

West Cornwall

One of the great things to do in Cornwall at half term is visit one of Cornwall's leading attractions, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Seal mating season begins around September time, this also coincides with rougher seas and storms approaching. What this means is that during this time we get a lot of seal pup call outs. The BDMLR, the RSPCA and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary rescue between 40 and 60 pups each year. As the leading Seal Rescue Centre in Europe and the only one in Cornwall we then become home to these pups while they are rehabilitated until they are ready for release. The team here provides round-the-clock care throughout the 'pup rescue season' (usually September - March) to get them back to full health so they can go back out into the wild where they should be. Our hospital and pools will be full and it's the perfect time to for a visit. The Seal Sanctuary is dog friendly.

Whats on in Cornwall this week as part of the Penzance Golowan Festival. Penzance is full of quirky and interesting photo opportunities and maybe you need someone to lead you to them.

You won't know where you are going until we get there but I promise there will be something you haven't seen before. The Paddling Jackdaw Photo Safari - Meet at the fountain in St. Anthony's Gardens, opposite the Jubilee Pool. In this year's Photo Safari for Golowan, we'll be taking on the 'Never Ending Story' theme by following a chronological trail through some highlights of Penzance history. As usual participants can pick up photographic hints and tips as well as learning a little about Penzance. Read more about Penzance Cornwall
