Churchtown Trail must-sees
Located in beautiful surroundings, yet only a two minute walk from the town centre, the grounds of the Penventon Park Hotel are tranquil and relaxing. There is history here, too, however. Built in the 1830s, the building was used during the Second World War as a centre for medical assessments and emergency supplies.
St Euny Parish Church
This is no ordinary parish church. Nestled at the foot of Carn Brea, St Euny has been a site of worship since the 6th century, and parts of the current building date back to 1487. Note the exceptionally long coffin-rest; a grim reminder of the tragedies suffered by local people as a result of the dangerous mining industry.
