Clarification of CALH's Role..

"The Cornwall Association of Local Historians are aware that there are posts on social media reporting that CALH, as a local history organisation, has made public statements concerning the planned development at Tintagel. The press coverage reported last year was a personal opinion by the member concerned, however we are also aware that this was unclear from the wording.

 

The Cornwall Association of Local Historians therefore wish to make it clear that neither individual committee members or the committee itself have a mandate to make public statements on behalf of the membership and therefore neither support or oppose the planned development at Tintagel. The committee are all agreed that CALH is not a campaigning group, but only serves as an information exchange and social organization."

 

In Search of Tywardreath..

 A group has been formed to find and trace the history of the Tywardreath Priory. Calling itself “In Search of Tywardreath” the community group aims to support archaeological and historical investigation into the Tywardreath Priory which existed from about 1088 to 1540. In addition, the group wants to support similar historic research on St Andrew’s Parish Church and identify and collate existing research on the Civil War Battlefield.

Also on the agenda for this very active group is to organise walking routes and a program of regular walks to explore the interesting area in and around Tywardreath. They also plan to investigate the natural and man-made landscape of the area, including palaeoenvironmental evidence.

Anyone interested in joining the group can contact Helen Barden at helenbarden@hotmail.com
