The beautifully outstanding town of Redruth is situated in a valley between the hilltops of Carn Brea, Carnmarth and Carmenellis. Located only three miles from the port of Portreah, Redruth was historically in the heart of the mining community which was built on the Great Flat Lode and is rich in copper and tin ore.
With its grand Victorian architecture in the south west of the town centre and award-winning restorations of the old miner’s cottages, there is much heritage to see. Redruth offers three town trails for those interested in mining history, each trail with its own unique story to tell of times gone by. The town is at the centre of the mineral tramways, trails which cross-cross the mining World Heritage Site and offer breathtaking views of the Cornish north coast, taking in sights from Newquay right down to St Ives.
The Mining Exchange building in the town centre was the place for trading and exchanging copper and tin, and the only mining exchange situated outside of London. The exchange had its own forward-thinking way of capitalising on the chaos of the trading of copper and tin. The mining exchange would fine mine captains for swearing and foul language; all the fine money received went to fund the Miner’s Hospital.
