Image result for great flat lode

 

The Great Flat Lode – ideal for cycling or walking situated a short walk outside of Lanyon.

In the historic Camborne – Redruth mining district, cycle rides come with a generous side helping of Cornish heritage. The circular 12km Great Flat Lode cycle trail forms part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and takes its name from a ‘lode’ of tin which was discovered lying at an angle of 30 degrees (rather than the typical 70 degrees). The landscape here is littered with relics from Cornwall’s heyday and cyclists will discover some of the finest remains of engine houses. De-saddle to visit what’s left of Cornwall’s last tin smelter at Carnkie or climb Carn Brea for superb panoramic views which take in South Wheal Crofty, Cornwall’s last working tin mine.
