The team were invited to join the Cornwall Heritage Trust St Pirantide event at St Cleer.


The celebration started with a walk to the nearby CHT site of King Doniert Stone. We were blessed with a beautiful early spring day, with the early signs of the season in the hedgerows and banks and also some great views east and west. The walkers were then regaled with the story of King Doniert and his successors; the talk was closed with a blessing in Cornish.

The walkers then returned to St Cleer village hall for refreshment, a short talk detailing the life and times of St Piran and then a wonderful shanty set played by Miner Quay.

The team set up with computers providing access to the website, a slide show of historical images of St Cleer and the surrounding parishes. We also had Mac Waters with us, who has had much of his collection of Cornish images and postcards digitised for the website.
