Trenere Wolas Gardyns -

A wonderful open air classroom

The mine is used during the winter months as a Field Study Centre for The Camborne School of Mines [CSM] which is part of Exeter University. The CSM campus being just 8 miles from the mine at Penrhyn near Falmouth which is 15 minutes by road.

Each year we welcome many groups of students from local & other schools who explore the mine, former tin dressing floors and our unique Bronze Age Scheduled Ancient Monument. This is a valuable resource as part of their curriculum work. Comprehensive Information Packs & Risk Assessments are available to download upon request.

Colleges and universities from the UK and abroad bring groups of students to the mine each year - some schools such as the Downs School at Malvern visit annually. Most recently University College London visited us with 45 geology students. During the summer a group from Michigan were with us for a day. Refreshments and traditional hot Cornish Pastys can be provided but we also welcome those who bring their own packed lunches.

We are always pleased to arrange for special speakers to meet and make presentations for your students in what is a lovely and historic location. We have ample covered areas in case of wet weather. Picnics on the lawns in our garden on a sunmy day makes for a memorable experience for young people and those in senior education.
