Gwennap Pit

What an inspiring place to visit, the ‘World Heritage Site’ ‘Gwennap Pit’, the atmosphere says it all. It’s not to hard to imagine the crowds of people gathering in 1743 to hear the founder of the ‘Methodist’ movement ‘John Wesley’ preach. Did you know, for a period in the 19th century ‘Gwennap Pit’ was described as the “richest square mile, anywhere on earth”.
