Beschreibung der Strecke
The Mineral Tramway’s 3.7-mile long Redruth and Chacewater Railway Trail connects with the existing Coast to Coast Trail at Twelveheads in the east and follows a route through Wheal Maid, to the south of Carharrack, the north of Lanner and on to connect with the Great Flat Lode Trail and the centre of Redruth.
The Redruth & Chacewater Railway was conceived in 1818 by the mining entrepreneur John Taylor. By 1823 the railway was under construction and completed in 1825 with a horse drawing each wagon. The line was successful and in 1854 it was converted for locomotive traction. The decline in Cornish mining led to its closure in 1915.
The railway ran from his mines near St. Day to the harbour at Devoran on the Fal Estuary. Although called the Redruth and Chacewater Railway, it never actually got to Chacewater, but was extended to Wheal Buller and Redruth via Carharrack and Lanner. This railway terminated at extensive wharves at Devoran.
Predominantly off-road, the trail comes off the Coast to Coast trail at Twelveheads and continues alongside the fascinating landscape at the tailings dam of Wheal Maid near Goon Gumpas. The trail connects here to the National Cycle Network’s Engine House trail. Carrying along west, the trail continues south of the village of Carharrack. A scenic route along Carn Marth Lane, which takes in the historic Pennance Engine house, follows a short section along the minor Pennance Road.
Continuing north of the village of Lanner and crossing the busy A393 Lanner Hill brings the trail onto another graveled off-road section where it meets the Mineral Tramway’s Tresavean trail.
The 1.9 miles of the Tresavean trail heads south and follows the Tresavean branch of the Hayle Railway from the top of Buller Hill. It offers an abundance of wildlife and great scenic views of the surrounding area as far as the clay tips of St Austell.
Both trails are safe and mostly flat. A small section of the Redruth- Chacewater trail is incomplete between Foxes Row and the B3298 and is missing signposts along its entire length.
