Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre

Proudly owned and operated by the West Tamar Council since 1999, the Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre represents a rich cultural resource and provides a unique and authentic insight into the history of the West Tamar. It is inextricably linked to the story of Beaconsfield gold and the town's mining heritage.

The visitor experience is delivered through a substantial number of interactive and static displays, working models, photographic collections, mining artefacts, industrial machinery and the memorabilia of everyday life in the Tamar Valley. The mine rescue display provides an engaging interpretative experience of the rock fall in the Beaconsfield Gold Mine in 2006.
