A wonderful and historic site to visit .Well worth the effort to find it .The signage could be improved from the main road . Worth checking when the visitor centre is open.
A must visit place for those interested in Cornish Heritage and the history of Methodism. Well kept free admission, free parking, visitor shop and chapel open day times.
To be fair, there is not that much to see at Gwennap Pit - its essentially a tiered hole in the ground where Methodist preachers including the Wesley's spouted there stuff. There is a small visitor centre with toilets and refreshments (seasonal). It is free, and if you're interested in the history of the Methodist church I suppose it has... More
This was a great find! We were only staying down the road at Mynheer Farm, but were so glad the owner recommended we take a visit to the pit. It was a lovely place - very well kept and managed. There was a lot of information available, to learn about the interesting history. it was also great fun to walk... More

Not much to see, but a significant historical site. Not easy to find either. A peaceful spot for reflection.
Growing up near Gwennap pit we use to go there in the holidays to see it. The roads are narrow but that is the nature of Cornwall. (also slows down the traffic) There are lots of lovely volunteers to help tell you about the attraction. You can probably do a visit in an hour and it is nicer on a... More
I wouldn't make a trip only to see that place, but if you in area it's worth visiting, but a bit hard to find, as roads are winding and very narrow and the brown tourist signs appear only when you really got to the place - although post code took me right to their doorway. The Gwennap Pit consists of... More
