Poldark’s Cornwall

27th August 2019

Anyone else shed a tear at the finale of Poldark?

Please tell me it wasn’t just me.

Well, if you want to recapture some of those memories, how about visiting some of the filming locations in the Duchy?

Cornwall is no stranger to film crews and why not? With all our stunning scenery, it’s a wonder we’re not featuring on TV and cinema screens all the time.

From Bond to Dracula and The Camomile Lawn to Doc Martin, film crews seem to love Cornwall.


Season finale.

Now this latest adaptation of Winston Graham’s saga has drawn to a close but you can still explore many of the scenes for yourself.

Many of the mines featured were real mining sites down in the far reaches of the county, such as Bottallack, which is a World Heritage Mining Site, and nearby Levant, the site of a mining disaster in 1919.

Charlestown, near St Austell, stood in for Falmouth and the dock for the ship which took Kitty Despard and Cecily Hanson away from England in the penultimate episode.

Bodmin Jail featured as well as Bodmin Moor, which was used for many of the outdoor Nampara shots as well as the first meeting between Ross and Demelza, filmed just north of the village of Minions.

Nampara Valley scenes were shot at St Agnes Head.

And our very own Holywell Bay, in Newquay, with its distinctive twin rocks, was seen many times whenever characters were doing long walks on the beach.
