"That Hayle was once the centre of the Industrial Revolution is a best kept secret. Widely known for its beautiful bay, golden sands and surf, there is also much interest in Hayle as a heritage town. Its importance as a major mining port, which also saw great advances in engineering technologies, has led to it being a part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site."
So begins the Heritage Trails booklet which contains three walks around Hayle together with lots of interesting history.
The booklet was financed as part of the Hayle Townscape Heritage Initiative and the printed copies disappeared very quickly. Thanks to Cornwall Council conservation officer, Penny Stokes, and to the designers Nixon Design of Hayle, you can now download a copy.
