Kernow Goth

Kernow Goth, established in 1920, is the leading organisation for all those who believe that Cornwall’s past and present heritage and culture can be an asset to its tomorrows.

Kernow Goth, fondyes yn 1920, yw an kowethyans ledya rag oll an re na neb a grys y hyll ertach ha gonisogeth a'n jydh hedhyw ha henna passys a Gernow bos tra bosek rag y dermyn a dheu.

Kernow Goth has the very broadest interests: in Cornwall’s people, ranging from our language and dialect, folk traditions, music, and leisure pursuits, our industrial, maritime, social and political history, the diaspora, and the achievements of our ancestors; and in the place itself, its geography and environment, natural history and human ecology.

Kernow Goth a'n jeves lesow an moyha ledan: y'n dus a Gernow, ow lesa dhyworth agan taves ha rannyeth, hengovyon an werin, ilow, ha gwriansow sygerneth, agan istori politek, kowethasek, morek ha diwysyansek, an keskar, ha kowlwriansow agan hendasow; hag y'n le hy honen, hy doronieth ha kerghynnedh, istori naturek ha ekologieth denel.

Kernow Goth promotes a wider awareness of what makes Cornwall special and incomparable, through helping to preserve what remains of value from the past, research and publishing, lectures, walks and talks, and the use of the media.

Kernow Goth aims to work with more specialised or localised groups whenever possible, and invites them to ‘share its umbrella’ in protecting the future of our nation.

Mapping Methodism

This is a major new project being undertaken by Cornish Story now working in partnership with both the Methodist Church and the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies to create a series of profiles of both existing and former religious sites.

Entitled ‘Mapping Methodism’, the project team led by Garry Tregidga and Tony Mansell would like to hear from volunteer researchers who would be interested in the study of chapels and other related sites (e.g. outdoor preaching pits) at the local level.

Please click the button link below to be taken to the 'Mapping Methodism Project' page which has fuller information about this project and how you can join in. This will be updated from time to time adding further links and research tools to assist researchers. Clicking the 'Mapping Methodism - Index of Chapels' button opens the index page for those chapels that have been logged already. 

Further images and information relating to these chapels is always continually welcome.
