SX2568 : The Tremar Stream

taken 7 years ago, near to Tremar, Cornwall, Great Britain

The Tremar Stream
The Tremar Stream
A tributary of the River Seaton, this stream was used for tin streaming long before the discovery of copper which turned this rural common area into a small settlement to support the mineworkers and their families. Indeed, before this industrial expansion, around 1840, the village of Tremar Coombe simply did not exist. The only properties in the area shown on the Tithe map pre 1841, and located at Trecarne, some 250 yards north, are believed to be the homes of the Tremar Tin Streamers. The Tremar stream continues to flow gently down the valley, oblivious of the changes this area has experienced, is experiencing and will undoubtedly experience!
