Camborne is boasting a great start to 2019 with a real ‘buzz in the high street’ (as reported by The West Briton this week). As well as the hard work of local traders, this buzz may also be attributed to sensitive redevelopments of Roswarne House, at Holman Park, and the Josiah Thomas Memorial Hall, both right in the centre of town.
These two historic sites once contributed to the thriving mining industry in the 1800’s bringing wealth to its people and some splendid architecture.
Today new homes in around Camborne and Pool are also helping to restore the town to its former glory. As house prices on the coast of Cornwall become prohibitive for local families, Camborne still has its feet on the ground.
With excellent transport links by bus and train there is much to be gained from a short commute to Truro or Penzance. Some even travel regularly to Plymouth or Exeter from their home in the heart of Cornwall!
In celebration of its importance, now and in the past, Trevithick Day on Saturday 27th April brings a whole range of spectacles and entertainment to Camborne. Holman Park, as is the tradition on this special day, will again open its doors for its Annual Open Day, welcoming anyone who wishes to see the completed renovations. The once derelict, sorry-looking Gladys Holman House is now nearing its fabulous reconstruction and conversion to grand apartments.
There will be prizes for the best Regency period costume (Jane Austin or Poldark style), including a private dinner for two in the celebrated Orangery; the gem of Roswarne House. Family picnics on the lawn will be welcome, and refreshments and music will add to the fun.
