Cornwall is a place where history is never far below the surface. It is a place of myth and legend, ancient tales and romance. The Cornish country house has been part of the history and a setting for mystery, legend and passion for centuries and has attracted many writers as a platform for great stories. Often the picture painted in fiction of Cornish houses is highly romantic – typically a rugged cliff top mansion, inhabited by a turbulent, but fascinating owner. The reality is a little more grounded. Cornishmen were usually too wise to build their houses on exposed cliff tops. Instead, Cornish houses were usually built in more sheltered places, often in beautiful valleys or screened by wonderful woods. Perhaps because these houses were built on sequestered and hidden sites, many are not that well known or recorded. In this talk, Patrick Newberry aims to remedy that lack of knowledge.

The talk starts at 6.30pm.
