Bolenowe (Cornish: Boslenow, meaning dwelling of strip-fields) is a village in west Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is approximately one-and-a-half miles (2 km) southeast of Camborne.[1] It consists of cottages that are spread apart by large gardens, the only amenities are a post box and a red phone box that has now been decommissioned.


The first record of the name was Boslaynou in 1321. A Hamelinus Bolyneu was named as one of three taxatores for the parish of Camborne in a Lay Subsidy roll of 1327. During the 16th century the occupiers of Bolenowe were titled tirek, which in the Cornish language means landed or rich in land. The Bolenowe estate may have extended to 100 Cornish acres. Bolenowe was known for producing bees wax at this time.[2]
