Kennall Vale Gunpowder Works
Tucked away in a wooded valley near the village of Ponsanooth, the old Gunpowder Works were in operation from the 1800s until the early 20th Century, when they were forced to close due to the invention of dynamite. Today, the remains stand in a nature reserve maintained by The Cornwall Wildlife Trust. The old ruins, beech woods and Kendall river make for a pleasant walk. Park in the village of Ponsanooth, walk past the shop and up the steep hill. The reserve entrance is on your right.
In the 18th and 19th Century the banks of the Kennall River were throbbing with industry, ranging from corn milling to iron founding. In a 7-mile stretch of the river there were 48 water wheels. It may be doubted if, within the same short distance, another such stream can be found in England.

"Thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sorgente, blessed by beautiful weather. The cottage is so comfortable and well-equipped, it felt like a real home from home. location is also ideal for exploring - I've been to Falmouth many times before but still found new places! Thank you, I hope to return."
