Cornish World

From Nigel Pengelly

Dyth da (good day) and welcome to the first Cornish World and myCornwall newsletter.

Every month I’ll be bringing you the latest news and views from The Duchy.

Never mind the weather; Cornwall is still the place to be this summer

Maybe we’ve not been to the beach that much but that has given us time to explore the hidden and special places of Cornwall; the real Cornwall.

The latest issue of Cornish World explores the areas of natural outstanding beauty; the places that really stand out come rain or shine. While we’re outdoors we also uncover the top picnic spots for a little al fresco dining – with or without the umbrella.

Cornwall has more museums than any other region in the UK. The Duchy is home to Britain’s smallest museum and also the deepest. We explore the amazing antiquities of these havens of heritage. To read about Cornwall’s great and wonderful museums click here

In 722, the Cornish aided by the Welsh secured a dramatic victory over the invading Saxons in a battle that brought peace to Cornwall for more than 220 years. This long period of peace dramatically developed Cornish culture and we explore the legacy of this little-discussed victory of our forefathers.

Sowena, Nigel Pengelly.

On myKernow, the first installment of Stories in Stone talks about the history of Cornwall, through the stone monuments, gravestones and other mineral ‘deposits’ left by our predecessors. From the stone crosses to the neolithic remains, Cornwall is alive with history and the rocks tell a wealth of stories.
