Originally a Saxon settlement and mentioned in the Domesday Book as Calwetone, Callington is now a busy market town, with a population of about five thousand people, and is the home of Ginsters Cornish Pasties.

The school (pictured below) has featured in the education of many local people. As Callington Grammar School, its catchment area included 11+ students from Stoke Climsland, St Dominick and Calstock parishes. It is now the home of Callington Primary School.

The railway shed (pictured above) was part of Callington station at Kelly Bray, some distance from the town itself. The local landmark of Kit Hill can be seen in the distance.

The part of the branch line from Gunnislake to Kelly Bray closed in 1966, as part of the Beeching Axe. The last train left Callington on 5 November, to the sound of detonators & fireworks, and carrying a wreath.
