Great article about 5 World Heritage mining walks in Cornwall from Visit Cornwall. Includes a walk at Minions which is very close to us here at The Green.
Sourced from Visit Cornwall
“Minions, Bodmin Moor
This walk has made the top five not just for its remnants of Cornish Mining which are plentiful and varied but for its wild and rugged views. Think vast open spaces, distant and clear horizons and atmospheric moors. As you pound across open fields and along disused tramways its not hard to imagine the beyond era and in the minds eye make out the shape of hardy miners throwing themselves into work. From the Minions to views of the Cheeswring and Kit Hill, this landscape is scattered with mining relics and offers countless tales of Cornish Mining history.”
