King Edward Mine, Camborne

These history trails have been put together mainly by local residents who are passionate about discovering more about their local environment and enabling others to do the same.

A special thanks must go to Ivor Corkell of Camborne Old Cornwall Society who compiled several of these trails, with contributions from David Thomas (Cornwall Council), Kingsley Rickard (Trevithick Society) and David Oates.

Our thanks also go to the Camborne Town Council Footpath and Countryside Working Party for The Red River Valley Walk.
