Original Song

A song celebrating the copper mining industry of Caradon Moor, near Liskeard, Cornwall. Written by Tanya Brittain.

Caradon Hill is on Bodmin Moor in the former Caradon district of Cornwall. The summit is 371 metres (1,217 ft) above mean sea level. Caradon Hill is on the southeastern edge of the moor; it is between the villages of Minions, Upton Cross, Pensilva and Darite.

The hill was once famous for its copper mines. The South Caradon Copper Mine, was the biggest copper mine in the UK in its heyday in the second half of the 19th century.
