We have two free events focussed on Treffry Viaduct coming up at the end of the month, and warmly welcome you all to come.
One of 13 historic sites we protect, Treffry Viaduct is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, as designated by UNESCO.
These events are part of a £10K heritage project which has been made possible by funding from GWR. Treffry Viaduct is a 25-minute walk from Luxulyan Train Station.
Date: Thursday 30th March
Time: 4pm & 6pm
Location: Luxulyan Village Hall
Featuring local historian, John Smith, this 20-minute film offers a whistle-stop tour of the incredible history behind Treffry Viaduct.
John is a former Archaeologist, whose career included 23 years as Field Officer and Senior Archaeologist with Cornwall Archaeological Unit (CAU). He has a wealth of knowledge about Cornwall’s industrial history and directed a major landscape survey of the Luxulyan Valley during his time with CAU.
The film screenings are open to the general public and completely free. Refreshments will be served.
Date: Friday 31st March
Time: 2.30pm – 4pm

Taking place on Friday 31st March 2023 at 2.30pm, this is a unique opportunity to visit the site and find out more about its history and management with Dick Cole, our Heritage Sites Officer. It is anticipated the walk, which is free of charge, will last approximately 1 ½ hours. Please note that the walk involves uneven ground and will include steps and slopes.
