On Wednesday 25th March, another excellent Story Café took place in Crantock. The Cosy Nook Tea Rooms was packed with interested people eager to listen to Ben Dobson’s talk on Bohemian Crantock. Ben’s unique style of presenting a story had the audience fully engaged from the start – with many facts on how the village developed from a primarily farming area a tourist haven, the people who lived here and the factors which shaped the area. The GWR began to promote Newquay as a holiday destination because the revenue from transporting ore and china clay had declined significantly as Par docks expanded. However, Crantock remained isolated as the road from Newquay was tortuous and went through Treloggan before descending to Trevemper and thence on to Crantock. It was not until 1926 that the Gannel road was built that shortened the journey. This was a major development and was accompanied by the building of a new bridge at Trevemper. In 1939, an order was finally approved by Cornwall Quarter sessions at Bodmin, granting Cornwall County Council permission to close the old bridge. Three years after the Gannel road was opened, the telephone network was extended from Newquay to Crantock and West Pentire and in May 1935, new power cables were approved for installation along the same route. Crantock’s isolation was coming to an end! It was interesting to learn about the events which took place in the village – the Gannel Regatta, the Tea Treats, Crantock Band and the people who had stayed in the village over the years – using it a base for writing, composing, painting and drawing...
Susan Irene Pellowe Trust Susan Irene Pellowe, passed away on July 16, 2012 after a valiant fight against ALS (a form of Motor Neurone Disease). She was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 10th 1939 to Lila Irene Cook Pellowe and William Charles Smithson Pellowe. William was a Cornishman by birth and a Methodist Minister and it was from him that Susan inherited her keen interest in Cornwall and the life and work of John and Susanna Wesley. Susan was named after Susanna Wesley. A performer, writer, theatre director and educator, Susan toured the USA, Canada, and Britain with her solo enactment of the Mother of Methodism, “O Susanna!”. In 1997 she was honoured with an award from the Westminster Experiment and Research in Evangelism Trust in London for her “outstanding contribution to promoting our traditions and letting people know the message that is at the very heart of Methodism.” Named a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh in 1996 for her services in preserving and furthering Cornish culture Susan visited Cornwall often. She was also co-founder of the Illinois Cornish Society and a member of the board of Celtic Women International. The Trustees of Cornwall Heritage Trust were delighted to receive a bequest of over £12,000 from Susan and will endeavour to use the money in a manner of which she would approve. Donations, bequests and membership subscriptions are vital to the Trust to enable it to carry on its work with the various sites around Cornwall as well as providing grants to organisations, educational projects and so much more. Thank you Susan for remembering Cornwall Heritage...

The President, Chairman and Trustees of Cornwall Heritage Trust are delighted to announce that HRH The Prince of Wales, Duke of Cornwall has agreed to extend his Patronage of the Cornwall Heritage Trust for a further five years from January 2017. This is a great honour for the Trust and provides encouragement to all within the Trust to carry on their aim of preserving and strengthening Cornwall’s unique heritage. Having celebrated its 30th anniversary last year the Trust is busier than ever. It owns four properties of its own and manages a further seven historic sites in Cornwall on behalf of English Heritage, all of which are free to visit all year round. The Trust has been working in partnership with Cornwall Council on the Luxulyan Valley Heritage Restoration project, which received earmarked funding of £3.4m from the Heritage Lottery Fund in November 2015. This project will enable important restoration works to the Treffry Viaduct, an iconic monument owned by Cornwall Heritage Trust. The grants scheme offered by the Trust enables organisations and individuals to further its work in preserving Cornwall’s heritage and promoting the knowledge of Cornwall’s rich past. This work is also reflected in the education programme where Schools Transport Grants enable Primary Schools to take the children on trips to experience their Cornish heritage first hand. This renewed Patronage by His Royal Highness underlines the importance of the work done by the Trust and acknowledges the difference made by the promotion of Cornwall’s heritage. Lt Col Philip Hills, Chairman of the Trust commented: “This is a very exciting time for the Trust and we are...
