About Heartlands

 

From Wastelands

 

To Heartands

 

Heartlands Cornwall

Heartlands is the fruition of a long held ambition in the community to redevelop the Pool area of West Cornwall which was left largely untouched following the demise of the tin mining industry and final closure of the mines in 1998, after nearly 400 years of activity. 

Situated at Robinson’s Shaft, the site is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site and is of great historic significance. Heartlands respects and builds on this history, but looks to the future by combining economic, social, environmental and cultural development in a balanced and sustainable way.

In November 2007, Heartlands was awarded a £22.3 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund’s Living Landmarks programme. It was one of only three projects in the UK to receive a grant under the Living Landmarks scheme and the only one in England. This has provided the core funding for the £35 million project, which has been led and partly financed by Cornwall Council. Our other key partners are The Homes and Communities Agency and the European Union, through the 2007-2013 Convergence Programme.

Heartlands opened its proud space to the public in Spring 2012. Although Cornwall Council will always remain an active partner, it will not run or finance the site. Instead, The Heartlands Trust took ownership and control in February 2012. We are a charity formed to run Heartlands as a social enterprise for the benefit of the local community and for Cornwall.
