Wheal Betsy

Wheal Betsy

Back in June I finally got to visit Wheal Betsy.

I’ve driven past it many times and this time finally decided to stop! It’s accessed via a small track that was a bit difficult to find and access from the main road, but once on it, you just follow it down to an area where you seems to be able to park. You can see Wheal Betsy sitting above you over the parking area.


Take the path to the left and follow it up to the mine.


As you walk around the mine, and take a few steps back, you’ll notice something unusual. It has a leaning chimney stack. Wheal Betsy is quite well known for this!


The mine and scenery just cries out of a black and white version.


A bit farther up the track and gaining a bit of height you get to see the views that you glimpse from the road.


It’s a scene that you, (or at least me), just had to take a panoramic photo of.


It’s a love place to go to have a stroll around. It is also a National Trust preserved site, which is always good to see!
