Directions to the Brickfield Site, Imerys Blackpool Pit nr Trewoon, St Austell.
The Brickfield site is just off the A3058 between Trewoon and Lanjeth at Imerys’ old Blackpool Pit. PL26 7TG will get you in the right vicinity.
Turn off the A3058 when you see the big brown Brickfield signs at the main entrance to the pit. Drive up the road a few hundred metres and just before the right hand bend, turn left through the metal gates. Continue along the track until you see another gate and cars on your left. Enter the site through this gate, park in this upper area and walk down to the main site from there.
