Kennal Vale – 200 years ago there would have been little or no beech forest here, the area was the site of gunpowder works. Difficult to imagine now. Check out previous blog post for more info on this field trip.

Ships brought coal here and trains transported it to the mines. There was no coal in Cornwall so it came from Wales. There is little trace of this heavy industry now.
