Camborne is located in the far west of Cornwall, UK, and was once one of the richest mining areas in the world. With a population of approximately 22,500 it’s a town all too aware of its industrial and mining past. It’s at the western end of the Camborne, Pool and Redruth conurbation which, together with the various ‘satellite’ villages, has a total population of approximately 45,000, making it the largest urban build-up in Cornwall. In the eighteenth century, Camborne Churchtown was a hamlet surrounded by moorland. It was just a village in a district of villages, most of which were larger than Camborne. The original approach road was at Tuckingmill where travellers had to follow an indirect route via Treswithian to reach the hamlet. With the building of the great turnpike road through Cornwall in 1839, Camborne’s isolation ended. The old approach lane, Baker’s Lane, was extended and later became Trelowarren Street which today is Camborne’s main shopping road.
During the first half of the 19th century Camborne prospered and became one of the most industrialised towns in the world. This was due to the incredible concentration of tin mines that were in and all around the town. Pigot’s Directory for Camborne, 1830 says, ‘From being a very insignificant place this town is fast riding into opulence and consequently importance from the valuable mines of tin and copper surrounding it’. Camborne reached the peak of its prosperity in the mid nineteenth century. In 1841 the population numbered 10,061 and by 1871 this had risen to 14,929, the highest ever figure. But most mining families were desperately poor and conditions in the mines were dreadful. Accidents were frequent, and there were many deaths. Women worked on the surface handling the ore as bal maidens and children started work as young as eight. The average life-span of the underground miners was under forty years. Riots against wage-cuts, working conditions and redundancies were common, drunkenness, brawling and vice endemic. In this atmosphere, similar to that of the Klondyke frontier towns, the mining communities were a fertile recruiting ground for early Methodists and Chartist groups. On one occasion rioting in Camborne became so bad that the police could not cope and the militia was sent for. They were quickly nicknamed the Red Jackets and those times are remembered still in the name of the pub in Trevenson Street.

I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
