Pentewan’s history

If you are interested in the history of Pentewan village you may like to log onto the website cornishstory.com and read an article which has just been uploaded on to it. The article incorporates some notes which my grandmother wrote about life in the village in the early 1900’s. I was asked to write the article for Cornish Story for their section on Kernows smaller villages which is an initiative by the Institute of Cornish Studies.

The Institute of Cornish Studies (Fondyans Studhyansow Kernewek) seeks to promote a greater knowledge of historical and contemporary Cornwall as a partnership between the University of Exeter and Cornwall Council, the Institute combines academic research and teaching with community engagement.

Stay safe and well in these difficult times.
