Heartlands Project


Allsop & Pitts in the Heart of Cornwall!

The Heartlands development is centered around the Robinsons Shaft mine complex between Camborne and Redruth in Cornwall providing a wide variety of facilities for locals and visitors. Within the extensive complex we have installed two kitchens, a café and a catering system to feed individual visitors and large-scale functions with ease.
