South Terras Uranium Mine, Cornwall’s only Uranium mine! Closed since the 1930’s South Terras, the mine it’s self is inaccessible however a few of the above ground structures including a chimney and settling pond remain. Built using rock from the mine itself the buildings are constructed of rock containing uranium ore.
There is a small fence around the site, we’d suggest you don’t cross this as there are deep water filled excavations to the side of the buildings. If your looking to make your Geiger Counter tick the highest readings appear further down the the dirt track.
South Terras Uranium Mine, about a mile southwest of St. Stephen. The mine is situated down a muddy track, with a couple of properties nearby. I’d suggest you park on the road and walk the last quarter mile.

Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, Philippines. Built in the early 1980’s but not commissioned the BNPP gives you the chance to explore all parts of a nuclear power-station, including the control room, turbine hall and reactor vessel itself as your guided through the faculty by expert staff.
My visit (in May 2014) lasted a couple of hours, starting with a classroom explanation of the reactor design and technology, an explanation of the circumstances sounding nuclear power in the Philippines, followed by an extensive tour of the facility, and allowed plenty of time for photography.
There was a small cost to visit (in the region of 100 PHP per person, though this may vary by group size). You’ll also need to organise your own transport to get to the site, it’s around 2 1/2 hours drive from Manila so the easist option it so hire a local driver for a day.
