  • However, while Chapel Carn Brea is the jumping-off point for adventures into ancient history, Redruth Carn Brea sits amid Cornwall once-booming tin and copper mining district..
  • From here there are views of the north and south coasts across a landscape shaped by mining history, complete with engine houses..
  • Carn Brea is circled by the Great Flat Lode trail, which follows the lines of a former mine tramway around and across the hill, for extended wandering among the heather and gorse..
  • Paul Nash/Alamy Given that much of St Ives will be off-limits during the G7 summit (11-13 June), if you want a distanced overview of what happening there, try a decent pair of binoculars from Godolphin and Tregonning hills, which are just two miles away from each other….
