Carnglaze Caverns

Whilst on our holiday to Coombe Mill we visited many various places of interest.

One of them being Carnglaze Caverns, which is situated near the village of St Noet, Cornwall.

The kids really enjoyed going here as they got to wear hard hats and go into large caves.

You enter the caverns at ground level where you walk into a large (what was once used as a store room in World War I) part of the mine that they now use for concerts and as a wedding function room.

 


You then walk down a large flight of stairs into the main part of the mine where you learn about how the caverns were mined and what techniques were used to mine safely( well as safe as they could lol)



You then walk into a side part of the cavern which has as rather deep lake in it, here you can get some lovely pictures.



Once we finished exploring the caverns we took the kids on a woodland walk to search for fairies and pixie's.

Along the waslk the boys discovered this funky little house and wanted to move straight in lol.
