Barrage Balloons over Falmouth, Cornwall. 1942

A view from a field of eleven or more barrage balloons tethered over Falmouth. Barrage balloons were bags partially filled with hydrogen and attached to a steel cable anchored either to the ground or large vehicles. The balloon could be raised or lowered to the desired altitude by means of a winch. The balloons denied low level airspace to enemy aircraft thereby decreasing their bombing accuracy and the risk of dive bombing. Photographer: Unknown

Monmouth Hotel Fire, Lostwithiel, Cornwall. October 1990

Extensive damage was done to the bar and lounge area of the Monmouth Hotel, situated in Parade Square. One pub worker, Miles McQuillen fled from the roof of the building using knotted sheets and then went back to rescue his dog when he found a ladder. Seven fire appliances from Lostwithiel, Fowey and Bodmin fought the blaze, thought to have been started by an electrical fault. Three years of renovation had only just been completed by landlord Chris Barbas. Photographer: Jonathan Barker

The Barbican, Lanhydrock, Cornwall. May 1930

The gatehouse known as 'The Barbican' at Lanhydrock. The 17th century gatehouse predates the house which was largely rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1881. Built in the 17th century for the Robartes family, all that remained of the house after the fire was the north wing, the entrance porch and gatehouse. The house was given to the National Trust in 1953. Photographer: Herbert Hughes
