St Just Miner’s Chapel

Built in 1833 St Just Miners’ Chapel is a Grade II* listed building of huge cultural, historical and spiritual significance.

For much of its existence it was the hub of the mining community in St Just and beyond. Important and rare architectural features are found within.

With its outstanding accoustics, the Chapel is a magnificent setting for music, from a single treble to a full-blooded Cornish Male Voice Choir, from a solo trumpet call to a thunderous paean from the magnificent organ soaring through the night air.

It is set within sight of the sea in possibly the most visually powerful, post-industrial landscape in Cornwall.

Cornish Mining WHS

A variety of Cornish mining landscapes were on 13th July 2006 inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site placing Cornwall and west Devon’s historic mining world heritage on a par with such international treasures as Stonehenge, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.

The Site consists of the most authentic and historically significant surviving components of the Cornwall and west Devon mining landscape from the period 1700 to 1914. The landscape is a testament to the profoundly important process of pioneering metal mining and to the innovations that had a key influence on the mining world at large during the nineteenth century.
