Wheal Martyn offers a great day out for everyone, set amongst the preserved remains of a Victorian clay works, now a Scheduled Ancient Monument. There is an interactive discovery centre, industry tools and artefacts, Cornwall’s largest working waterwheel and much more! At the peak of the site you’ll discover spectacular views over a modern working china clay pit and there is a fantastic children’s challenge trail and cycle routes leading from the site.
