Just four miles to the southwest of Tavistock, in Devon, England, “bordering the beautiful River Tamar, amidst towering cliffs and gently rolling farmland”, lies Morwellham Quay—a historic river port that developed more than a thousand years ago to support the local mines. Strategically located at the center of the Tamar Valley Mining District and only nine miles north of Plymouth, Morwellham, together with nearby Tavistock, forms the easternmost gateway area to the rest of the peninsula. At its peak, Morwellham was the richest copper port in Queen Victoria's Empire. So important was the port for the British crown that the queen herself visited it in 1856.
