The Book of St Ervan: The Story of a Rural Parish by Moira Tangye
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is another book in the "Halsgrove Parish History" series, reminding us of the people and events that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future. The photographs in this unique volume, many of them previously unpublished, are a vital record of the history and inhabitants of this ancient settlement brought together from across the community. There's something magical, remote and peaceful about the small rural parish of St Ervan, which lies a few miles from Cornwall's north coast cliffs, between the holiday resorts of Padstow and Newquay. Since prehistoric times its people have depended on the dozen or so small farms. Farms and their businesses are still run by families that go back generations in the parish. Today St Ervan parish enchants and captivates, maybe because (unofficially) it has a holy well, the pure waters of which are still used for christenings. Or perhaps it is because of the people, who enjoy an enduring sense of community. All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 200 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of St Ervan and its surrounding parish.
