Since moving away from my home town of Falmouth in Cornwall some 10 years ago I seem to bump into my past on a regular basis. Working as a professional photographer living in South Oxfordshire the subject of Cornwall seems to always come up in conversation with the people I meet. I’m not one to say to someone ‘ hey i’m from Cornwall, have you ever been?’ Its more a case of people telling me they are going to Cornwall, they have just come back from Cornwall or they have family in Cornwall.
In the past people have asked me where they should visit or places to stay etc. For that reason some years ago a did produce a small homemade rough guide (it was pretty rough too!) to Cornwall giving my friends enough to do for a few days whilst in Cornwall. I would always include those little gems of places that the average visitor would never seen along with my favourite places.
This blog is my effort at preserving and sharing my memories of growing up in Cornwall, its traditions, its history, great places to visit, cornish recipes, and dreckley a bit of proper cornish language!
