Support our work to preserve and strengthen Cornwall’s unique heritage for generations to come
All over Cornwall, there are heritage sites that are uncared for and at risk – some are even lost forever. Cornish traditions range from gig building to wrestling to shanty singing and dancing. So many people value our culture that we need traditions, language, literature, arts, music and dance to continue to flourish and inspire the next generation.
Cornwall Heritage Trust is a Charity and therefore wholly dependent on the goodwill of its members and from donations. By joining the Trust you can help this worthwhile cause.
