Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum

Wheal Martyn is situated in a beautifully landscaped 26 acre site, originally two clay works called 'Wheal Martyn' and 'Gomm', situated close to St. Austell, Cornwall in the Trenance Valley which at one time contained several china clay works.

Visit the Eden Project

The clay works have been carefully restored in 1975, to give an historical idea of what they originally looked like, and go back to the 1870's. Wheal Martyn is still active today, and it is possible, following a walk to a viewing point, to see some activity in the pit.
The reception building incorporates exhibition areas, tea shop, gift shop and multi-media theatre.
We recommend your tour starts with a viewing of the multi-media film in the theatre, and then a look through our exhibitions, showing examples of china, porcelain and colourful mineral specimens to give you an idea of what china clay is used for, and why it is still such an important industry today, as well as machinery and tools that were used.
