Landscape Archaeological Field Trip with Peter Herring & Robin Sullivan 


@ Starting from The Blackpool Trail - Higher Car Park

29th May 2021 10.30am - 4pm 


This event is part of ‘And Everything And Nothing Has Changed’ (2021). A 5 month Public Arts & Heritage Programme by Cornish Queer Artist & Producer Robin Sullivan. 


Come and join this public field trip with local Landscape Archaeologist Peter Herring. Throughout the day we will walk through the China Clay landscape whilst hearing captivating insights into the local area’s evolving history, spanning not just the last 300 years of China Clay mining, but 6,000 years of evolving landscapes, communities and culture. 


The main themes of this field trip will surround changing land use throughout millenia. How communities and culture shape the land and the land shapes community and culture; the concept of a taskscape. 


This Field trip alongside subsequent interviews with leading specialists will be produced into a captioned documentary as a lasting legacy. This part of the project programme has been kindly partially funded by Cornwall Heritage Trust. 


The field trip is a moderate walk, with hills, uneven footing and some sections on road. For further information on the exact route or any questions relating to accessibility please email Robin directly on 


(P.S We will be stopping for lunch so a packed lunch is highly recommended! )


All events within the programme are free but limited in capacity. For more information on this event and how you can get involved in the rest of programme go to WWW.ROBINJAMESSULLIVAN.COM or email Robin on


After high demand I am now looking to secure funding to run another one! Please drop me an email to be added to my mailing list and hopefully in the not to distant future you'll get a lovely email with good news! 

‘And Everything And Nothing Has Changed’ has been made possible with generous support and funding from; Eco-bos, Imerys, Austell Project, the Coastal Communities Fund, Creative Civic Change, Arts Council England, Cornwall Heritage Trust, FEAST, Royal Cornwall Museum, Wheal Martyn Museum, Cornwall College and Cultivator Cornwall.
