Wheal Coates was a Tin mine situated on the North Cornish coast between St Agnes and Chapel Porth.
One of the most striking things about the Cornish coastline are the old mine buildings standing proud on top of the cliffs. One of the most famous and picturesque are those at Wheal Coates. Situated between St Agnes and Chapel Porth they offer a great chance for photography local history and stunning sea views.
The mine itself opened in 1872 and closed in 1889. If you happen to visit Cornwall seeing these fabulous buildings is a hard thing to not manage as they dominate most coastline views. Wheal Coates is especially worth visiting as it has stood the test of time so well.
Hopefully it will still be standing in another 100 years time…

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
It is maybe the closest you will come to the North Pole: the polar region around Ny Ålesund. It is on 79° degrees north, where polar bears play polo and I was farthest from civilization. A tale about 50 shades of ice.
