CAMBORNE Cornish: Kammbronn


Once formerly one of the richest tin mining areas in the entire world and much of this heritage can still be found today. Dolcoath Mine, the 'Queen of Cornish Mines' for example, was for many years the deepest mine in the world with a depth of 3,500 feet (1,067 m),


Although a considerable number of ruinous stacks and engine houses remain, they cannot even begin to convey the scenes of 150 years ago when scores of mines transfigured the landscape. Because of the prior importance of metal mining to the Cornish economy, the Camborne School of Mines (CSM) developed as the only specialist hard rock education establishment in the United Kingdom.
