Another view of Trevellas Porth, this time looking down from the coast path.

Once at the heart of a mining operation the valley here is now a tranquil place with the little stream winding down to the beach. There is still tin in the stream and some is extracted further up the valley at the Blue Hills Tin Mine - but only in quantities small enough to make jewellery, not like the industrial scale just over a hundred years ago.

Trevellas Porth is just around the corner from St Agnes' main beach Trevaunance. It is however always much, much quieter.
