THIRTY-FIVE MILLION POUND PROJECT IN CORNWALL NEARING COMPLETION
7 February 2012
A £35 million project in Cornwall, which has transformed 19 acres of derelict land into an elegant community space and a World Heritage Site, is nearing completion.
The Heartlands Project for Cornwall, near Redruth, will become a “landmark destination within the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site”, according to its website.
Centred around the Grade II listed Robinson’s Shaft mine complex, public open spaces and heritage buildings are to become hallmarks of the attraction, which was funded by a Big Lottery Fund grant and financial support from Cornwall Council.
There will also be a café and bar, art and craft studios and botanical gardens included in the development, which is due to open this spring.
Should you be planning a stay in some luxury accommodation in Cornwall this year, be sure to drop by the new attraction, showcasing the very best of Cornwall’s cultural landscape.
