From Our Editors

Nestled in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Morwellham Quay has been used as the setting for the BBC2 series Edwardian Farm. Touching the shores of the River Tamar, this World Heritage site was once a bustling Victorian port. The waterwheel, elevated railway and historic buildings still stand amid the disused quay, which now preserves the environment and working conditions of Victorian life. Journeys on the railway run along the riverbank before entering the narrow depths of the abandoned copper mine.

The site is a little bit tatty in places (particularly around the boat) but has the potential to be fantastic.

Thank you for a lovely afternoon last Wednesday 6th November. Everything was wonderful, the food in The Ship Inn was delicious, staff and volunteers lovely, toilets brilliant, not good weather but enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Disabled parking at bottom of hill would be a plus as both of struggled going back up, probably not viable though.Visitor entrance and shop fabulous, loved the automatic doors. It was a short but sweet visit, hope to come back earlier in day to get full enjoyment. Children's park is brilliant for playing off excess energy, Amelia and I just stopped ourselves from going down the shoot! I checked my groupon voucher when I got home, still couldn't find ref number but it was stamped "Redeemed" so I hope you do get paid. Thank you for letting us go in without all relevant information, we loved being there. Wendy Blackwell.
