Photographer's Note

Bodmin Moor is one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty,it is a remote, bleak heather covered upland granite moorland still grazed by moorland ponies and bisected by the main A30 road.

Like much of Cornwall, Bodmin Moor was fairly heavily mined during the nineteenth century. Ruins of disused grantie qurries and tin and copper mines litter the landscape, including the Phoenix United mine in Minions, where there is a visitor's centre. Although for the most part it is privately owned, since 2000 much of Bodmin Moor has been designated open access land and there are excellent opportunities for hiking and other outdoor activities.
