Morwellham Quay

Morwellham Quay Review

In the 19th century, Morwellham (pronounced More-wel-am) was England's main copper-exporting port, and it has been carefully restored as a working museum, with quay workers and coachmen in costume. Visitors can board a special train that goes along the River Tamar and into the George and Charlotte Copper Mine. There are occasional folk music performances on Sunday between 11 and 2. The site lies 2 miles east of Cotehele House and 5 miles southwest of Tavistock.
