Coordinates: 50°13′44″N 5°15′40″W / 50.229°N 5.261°W / 50.229; -5.261 Camborne-Redruth was an urban district in Cornwall, England, from 1934 to 1974. It was formed as a merger of Camborne and Redruth urban districts along with parts of Redruth Rural District and Helston Rural District (both of which were being abolished).[1] The towns are about four miles apart and form a loose conurbation.[2]

The urban district persisted until it was merged into the Kerrier district of Cornwall under the Local Government Act 1972.
