Clay Trails Partnership

The Clay Trails are a network of short walking, cycling and horseriding trails through mid-Cornwall.The Clay Trails wind their way through the unique landscape of Cornwall’s china clay mining area, offering an insight into both the past and present of an industry which has shaped the area since the Industrial Revolution. China clay – or kaolin – is still extracted today for use in the paper and ceramics industries, and much more. You’ll see:•Stunning turquoise dams, coloured by fine particles of mica suspended in the water•Towering clay tips, made up of excavation waste, known collectively as the Cornish Alps•Historical listed buildings such as drying chimneys Working china clay pitsThe trails are managed by Cornwall Council and Cormac in partnership with Imerys.
