Wheal Avu Mine, Cornwall

Wheal Avu Mine, Cornwall

Wheal Aview (Wheal Avu) was apparently a bogus mine operation dating back to the Second World War, when generous supports were granted by the government to explore local ore deposits.

To asdd credence to the operation , a short adit was driven in barren granite and a building was erected, and these ruins can still be seen near the car park in lower Cot Valley.
