Botallack Manor

Botallack (Cornish: Bostalek) is a village in west Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It lies along the B3306 road which connects St Ives to the A30 road.

The village is in a former tin mining area situated between the town of St Just in Penwith and the village of Pendeen.[1]

The Botallack Mine, former tin mines, are low down the cliffs north of Botallack. The BBC television series Poldark was filmed partly in Botallack, using Manor Farm as Nampara.[2]

Lae Maen Veor (Cornish: Legh Men Veur meaning great stone ledge), or Botallack Head, is a headland to the north west of Botallack.
