  • Jo Lewis adds:

    Wheal Busy Bible Christian chapel is dated 1863 and was the chapel for the Wheal Busy Mine.

    It stands along a single track lane. From Blackwater take the road opposite the Red Lion Pub, going under the A30. Take the next right turn, opposite a track and follow the road up the hill and per the railway. Take a right at the phone box down a track, and the chapel appears in front of you on the right.

    It is described as one of the best surviving complete examples of the simple wayside chapel in Cornwall and one of only 6 examples of its type to retain all the original fittings including box pews.

    The chapel became Wheal Busy Methodist Church in 1932 and closed as a Methodist society in 1972, but has continued as an independent church.

    The Sunday school was further down the track – it is now residential.

  • I am leading a special time of praise worship and preaching at Wheal Busy on Saturday October 10th at 7pm to celebrate the wonderful Bible Christians.
    You are most welcome to join us. There will be pasty supper afterwards!
    It is a lively place carrying much of the enthusiasm of the Bryanites!
