Tankerville Mine

A lot of work, largely funded by English Heritage, has recently been completed and the site is again open to the public.

The only public access is the footpath from the top road (we recommend that you park at ‘Burgam Corner’ and walk along the road. We will be looking for volunteer help in early 2015 to get the site looking tidy and to put in steps to the lower part of the site.
