Callington is a small town with a population of a few thousand and lies in south-east of Cornwall. Worth a visit is St. Mary's Church in the centre of the town, where a Celtic lantern cross can be seen in churchyard and the ancient tombs of the Ayssheton and Willoughby families. Another piece of history is the nearby Old Clink parish vestry room where pretty criminals waited before being seen by the magistrate. Callington does not have a railway station, but Saltash and Gunnslake are the nearest towns that do and trains from there run to different parts of the coast and Plymouth. When the weather is good and the waves high, many people take trains from these stations to the coast to go surfing.
