Luxulyan Valley is a dramatic, wooded valley close to St Blazey and Luxulyan, through which the River Par flows. The historic Saints Way runs approximately for 27 miles from Padstow to Fowey. The Valley retains an industrial and natural heritage of international and national importance and was designated as part of the World Heritage Site in 2006. The valley’s mining heritage represents principally the physical manifestation of one man’s vision Joseph Treffry (1782-1850) to exploit the valley’s mineral resources. Remains include the Treffry Viaduct, granite mine buildings and the later 20th century concrete structures, leats, tramways, mineshafts, adits and an impressive waterwheel pit. Significantly, both copper mining and then the later china clay processing industry are represented side-by-side.
