Industrial history and significance

Trewellard shows within a small area a range of differing responses to the mining boom which stretched here over an unusually long period  - the adaptation of an old manorial centre and its reversion by 1900 to a mainly agricultural existence, the creation of a service-orientated village centre with its attendant higher class houses, and a scatter of cottages and smallholdings on old wasteland. It is the only settlement outside St Just in the area to have something of an urban quality about it.

This settlement forms part of the proposed Cornwall & west Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site Bid, and is considered an important part of the context for the Bid.
