The House of the Elements …

The core of the Great Atlantic Way will be the House of the Elements - an iconic visitor centre in association with the Met Office, which for the first time will demonstrate how climate and weather works and impacts on the world and the land, sea and air on which we depend.

It will set the scene for the Great Atlantic Way by showing how the Cornish landscape has been created and how the elements have shaped the environmental and cultural heritage of the region.

It will be created by an internationally-acclaimed design team and will be superlative but not intrusive nor destructive to the landscape. In fact it will be created around the reclaimed Tiscott landfill site at Kilkhampton near Bude and will preserve and open up to visitors the beauty of the immediate landscape which has been closed to the public for 50 years.
