Gunnislake :: SX4371
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The village has a history of mining although this industry is no longer active in the area.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.
Tamar Valley Line
The Tamar Valley Line runs from Plymouth, Devon, to Gunnislake, Cornwall, also known as the Gunnislake Branch Line. The line follows the River Tamar for much of its route. Like all railway lines in Devon and Cornwall, it is unelectrified and all trains are diesel-powered. The entire line is single-track past St. Budeaux Junction. The line opened in 1908. There are two viaducts on the line across the River Tavy and Tamar.
