"A new 'Old Cornwall' society making the 42nd throughout Cornwall.

Great to see that the 'Old Cornwall' movement with over 2000 members is still active as it approaches its centenery next year in 2020. Good luck to Cury & Gunwalloe OCS.

Anyone interested in joining a society or starting their own 'Old Cornwall' society and wanting to discuss please contact Len Sheppard at publicity@oldcornwall.net The movement is about actively collecting, preserving and sharing Cornwall's heritage."
