Long Description:
Chapel Porth Managed by the National trust, this is a small cove with initially a cobble beach which opens up into a large sandy beach when tide conditions are right.
The Cove equally has an adit or exit tunnel from the nearby Wheal Coates higher up the hill.
I wonder, whether the opening in the hillside was intentional as an adit or did mining activities within the hill just emerge from it creating the new lower opening..
The address of property, including Postcode.:
.


The charges to visitors and opening hours.:
There is a small car park at the bottom of a narrow lane, with passing points, where a charge is made, members have access by producing membership card. There is a pay and display machine There is a seasonal cafe for visitors.
