Wrecks, Rescues and Smuggling

Today we had a real treat when Chloe and Iain from the Kresen Kernow (Cornwall Records office) came in to work with us. Back at their base they have over four miles of records going back over 850 years – all about Cornwall.

Our exciting workshop had us ordering shipwreck photos and dates, drawing real smugglers from archived jail descriptions and even attempting to fire rockets as if we were saving lives using Henry Trengrouse’s invention. What a great afternoon.
