BBC's Poldark is a welcome reminder of the rich industrial heritage that our area enjoys, with the dramatic shots of the clifftop engine houses and tin mines. While much of the intensive tin mining took place further south in the Cornish peninsula, the North of the region also has some intriguing industrial heritage attractions. We've collated our favourite 6 – if we've missed a good one, let us know in the comments.
North Cornwall and Devon are peppered with excellent places to eat, from good pub grub to trendy bistros. But where do you go if you really want to celebrate something special?

Most are a bit of a drive away and of course none of these come cheap, but these restaurants feature as some of the very best in the South-West. They are roughly in order of our preference, but that's just splitting hairs - you are guaranteed an incredible meal at any of these fine establishments! If we have missed yours, leave it in the comments below.
