And so, the Reporting Team wearily picked up a small group of donkeys and, for the umpteenth time, hauled their asses up Rosewall Hill.
There are several paths, all of them pretty gentle, you can take from the lay-by side. However, once you are nearer the top the paths become less obvious. However, it's a pretty open area and so there is plenty of room to roam. Just watch out for the occasional mineshaft or marauding goat!
Undaunted, the Reporting Team traversed the fearsome foliage and finally made it to the summit of Rosewall Hill (15 on map).
Once you arrive at the top you find a couple of things on offer; naturally occurring piles of stones and unnaturally occurring piles of stones!
OK, let's start with the unnaturally occurring ones.
The mine buildings are long since departed, with just the chimbleys remaining.
If you actually want to know about the mine your best bet is to either head down to the St. Ives Museum (on Wheal Dream, overlooking Bamaluz Beach) or the St. Ives Trust (First Floor, St. Ives Library, corner of Gabriel Street and Tregenna Place).
