About Callington

The little town of Callington was first mentioned in the Doomsday Book. It can be found a short distance from the River Tamar and close to the River Lynher, in a quiet region which was once known for its prosperous tin mines.

Kit Hill dominates the surrounding scenery, it rises to a majestic 1094ft and is crowned by the chimney stack of an earlier mine. It is said that beneath Kit Hill lies a legacy of almost every known mineral in the world. The Hill was presented to the county by Prince Charles, Duke of Cornwall in 1985 and is now a country park.

The lovely Church of St.Mary dates from the 15th-century. Amongst its many treasures is a fine alabaster monument to Lord Willoughby de Broke(1452-1502) who served as Marshall of the Army for King Henry VII. A short distance away lies Dupath Holy Well, it is enclosed in a Chapel built in the 15th-century and the water is said to contain properties for the cure of many diseases including whooping cough.

In the countryside beyond the town lie Hingston Downs, some of the highest land in Cornwall.

Callington can be found between Liskeard and Tavistock, both picturesque interesting towns. The Tamar estuary and the great maritime city of Plymouth lies within easy driving distance.
