Travelling to UK, caches not to be missed? in United Kingdom and Ireland Posted September 7, 2010 Not far from St Ives - a trad Kernow I - A scramble down some iron rungs to get "up close and personal" with an historic Cornish tin mine (plus a possible bonus of seeing rare Cornish choughs in the area). If you want more historical information about the area and tin mining there's good multi nearby - "Fool's Gold Rush". MrsB PS Can I ask how long you'll have down in Penzance/St Ives area? A flying visit to each, or a few days? We'll be one day (the 18th) in St Ives and 4 days in Penzance.
