Tywardreath Priory September Open Day

What a wonderful day we had yesterday at Newhouse Farm despite a rainy start. As the Sun came out, so did lots of people, old friends and new to discover some of the local history of Tywardreath and surrounding areas. We had weaving, spices, focus boards, maps, parchment texts, quill art, archeological finds and of course, the very popular test pit. Upon cleaning the trench, we found fragments of animal bone, unusual stones, beautiful local slate and a lovely example of a handmade ridge tile. Lots more treasures to come I’m sure!
Thanks to everyone involved for making another open day successful and to everyone who came down and saw us.

Open Day 11th June 2017

We had a fantastic day with lots of people travelling from all over Cornwall to come and learn about the diverse history of Tywardreath and the Priory! Lots of interesting gossip, theories, facts and community involvement all round. Well done to the team for putting on a great event. Thanks all for coming!
