It has been postulated that Callington was one of the possible locations of the ancient site of the court of King Arthur. Monuments nearby such as Castlewich Henge and Cadsonbury Iron Age Hillfort, together with Dupath Well built in 1510 are well worth a visit. Callington has previously been a very import mining area, one of the most important in Great Britain during the 18th century but today all the mines are closed and only the remains are left. However granite is still quarried on Hingstom Down.
Events in Callington
Henry III granted a market charter to Callington in 1267. This allowed the town to have a weekly and annual fair. To this day, the first Wednesday in October sees the Honey fair, when street traders, charity stalls etc., gather to relive the tradition.
The annual Carnival, held in July each year, includes a window display competition and the town is an avid participant in the Britain in Bloom competition, of which it has won in previous years.
In June of each year you can take part in the Kit Hill Run.
