A390 Road
The A390 runs along much of the length of Cornwall. It heads across river valleys rather than along them, and therefore is hilly and windy. As such, it makes it fun to drive, and is never the same throughout its length. It runs 60 miles from Tavistock SX4773 : A390, Tavistock to Three Burrows.

Gunnislake (Cornish: Dowrgonna) is a large village in east Cornwall. It is situated in the Tamar Valley approximately ten miles north of Plymouth.
The village has a history of mining although this industry is no longer active in the area. During the mining boom in Victorian times more than 7000 people were employed in the mines of the Tamar Valley. During this period Gunnislake was held in equal standing amongst the richest mining areas in Europe.
