We have put together this site as a guide to Devon Life Readers who may wish to visit Morwellham...and do for it is a fantasic day out. We learnt an immense amount about what life was like for miners in the Georgian / Victorian age and in the process became experts on mining techniques and geology.


All the workshops in our website are available for members of the public but do check out the times when you arrive


There is a video about the history of Morwellham  which loops all day

How to find Morwellham Quay


From Tavistock in Devon, follow the brown signs - take the A390 towards Liskeard/ Gunnislake  and turn  left after two miles when you see the brown sign to Morwellham.

From Cornwall, follow the signs on the A390 towards Tavistock and turn right at the sign after 1 mile after Gunnislake Bridge.


It took us just over an  hour to reach Morwellham from the St Austell area.

Hope you enjoy our site
