St Day village, Cornwall

The former mining village of St Day is in many peoples eyes actually a town. St Day and the neighbouring parish of Gwennap were at one time a hive of industry associated with the mining industry.

Due to rich reserves of copper, extracted on a large scale from the early 1700s, the area was deemed The Richest Square Mile on earth. It employed several thousands of men and women, with their children also employed as ore dressers. The villages of Lanner, St Day and Chacewater growing to meet the need for housing.

Nowadays, a shadow of its former self, the St Day area still offers many places of interest to the casual visitor as well as the industrial historian.
