Blackwater is a small rural village situated between Truro (6 miles) and Redruth (4 miles) and close to the north coast and its sandy beaches (3 miles).
There are a number of barrows dating from the Bronze Age in the vicinity of the village. Two Burrows stand adjacent to the road leading from Chiverton Cross to Mount Hawke and Three Burrows can be seen in a field adjacent to the south side of the A30 just east of the Chiverton Cross roundabout. An ancient cross has also been reported in use as a boundary stone in the area of the Three Burrows.
