Temple, Cornwall. 1964 Featured April Print

Temple, Cornwall. 1964

View from the lane near the church. The top of the castellated tower of which can just be discerned on the lower left of the picture behind a tree. In the middle ground of the picture is Merrifield Farm. To the right of the farm, behind a tree, can be seen the conical spoil tip of Cardinham China Clay Works. The name of this China Clay Works could be a local term as it is sited on the edge of Cardinham Moor. However, it is marked as Glynn Valley China Clay Works (disused) on the O/S six inch map 1907.

Knill ceremony, Knills Monument, St Ives, Cornwall. 25th July 1981 Featured April Print

Knill ceremony, Knills Monument, St Ives, Cornwall. 25th July 1981

The Mayor at the Knill ceremony with spectators in the foreground. John Knill was born in Callington on 1st January 1733 and worked as a collector of Customs in St Ives between 1762 and 1782, where he also became mayor in 1767. He was regarded as being slightly eccentric. In that same year, 1767, he decided to build a 50 foot, three sided, pyramid style granite structure on Worvas Hill just to the south of St Ives, to be known as Knill's Steeple. It was erected as his intended burial place. The monument bears on one side the painted coat of arms of Knill, with the Latin "Resurgam" (I shall arise) and, in English, "I know that my redeemer liveth". He left detailed instructions in his will for ceremonies to be carried out in his memory every five years on St James' Day, July 25th, at the Steeple. This included dancing for fifteen minutes to the tune of "All people that on earth due dwell" by ten young girls under the age of 10, dressed in white and who traditionally have to be daughters of either fishermen, tinners or seamen. They are accompanied by two widows, the Mayor, the Customs Officer and a Master of Ceremonies. In his will, Knill left money for the upkeep of the monument and for celebrations to take place. The first ceremony, in which Knill participated, took place in 1801. He died in his chambers on 29th July 1811 in Gray's Inn Square London and is buried in St Andrew's Church, Holborn.

Gymnasium at Tehidy, Illogan, Cornwall. Probably 1916-1918 Featured April Print

Gymnasium at Tehidy, Illogan, Cornwall. Probably 1916-1918

Interior of gymnasium with young men on the horse, parallel bars and other apparatus, probably during the First World War. The manor of Tehidy was owned by the Basset family who prospered from mining and their vast estate. The 40 bedroom mansion house was built in 1855 to replace the earlier mansion of 1734. The manor was sold in 1916 ending 700 years of Basset rule. The house was acquired for the treatment of tuberculosis sufferers and handed over to Cornwall County Council on Whit Monday 20th May 1918. The fire devastated the building two weeks after the hospital opened and it was rebuilt by the County Council. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
