Long Description:
Kit Hill dominates the landscape in East Cornwall.
The Summit of Kithill is marked by the stack of South Kithill Mine. Rich in tin, copper, arsenic and wolfram. Worked since Medieval times, many of the v shaped surface workings of the early tin streamers, to the spoil heaps, adits and shafts of the late 19th and 20th century workings though overgrown are still visible- so take great care and keep to marked paths. Keen walkers and horse riders will enjoy the waymarked circular trails. The granite quarry was worked until the 1950's.
