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
