Explore the Local Area

Here in Camborne, we’re blessed. Some of Cornwall’s finest scenery, heritage and nature can be found right on our doorstep.

Within just a few miles, we have the dizzying cliffs at Hell’s Mouth, and the bluebell-strewn woodlands at Tehidy and Pendarves. And our area’s simply bursting with history – whether that’s mining sites at East Pool, King Edward Mine and the Great Flat Lode, or ancient, mysterious remains at the Giant’s Quoit and Carn Brea.
