Kit Hill Country Park
The highest point in the Tamar Valley and with over 400 acres of heathland to explore, Kit Hill Country Park shows how humans have worked minerals on marginal upland since the stone age.
Located in the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Kit Hill is a distinctive outcrop of the great granite mass that runs under the whole of Cornwall. The area is rich in archaeology from a Neolithic long barrow to 19th century mining remains and is also home to a rare array of animal and plant life. Look out for the frequent guided walks and events.
