By becoming a Friend of Wheal Martyn, you are supporting our work, which is driven by our purpose of preserving and keeping alive Cornwall’s china clay mining heritage, which has shaped our world.

As the only china clay mining museum in the UK, our work is important; for example, we care for and preserve over 2,500 objects and artefacts, preserve a Scheduled Ancient Monument (the Victorian Clay Works), provide educational opportunities, and inspire communities by generating engagement with our heritage.
