Description

Cornwall's spectacular shoreline, with its brutal cliffs, desolate moors and pre-historic coastal settlements, has long held a source of fascination for those who cross the Duchy's boundary line. Yet despite the endurance of seascapes and ancient landscapes, which remain hidden from mainstream tourist routes, there are, throughout Cornwall, stories of change. Patterns of life have adapted to a shifting world, and whole communities have been affected as traditions are gradually subsumed in the struggle for 'progress'. However, remnants of recent history are still evident in Cornwall's architecture, its redundant transport systems and its cultural relics. This book is an exploration of some of the region's hidden facets and lesser known places which are testament to a way of life experienced just a couple of generations ago.

Author Biography

Joanna Thomas was born in Bristol. Her childhood holidays were spent in Cornwall where she gained a love for the county. Such was the pull to its coastline that she chose to return to study at University College Falmouth for a degree in Journalism and later a Masters in Professional Writing. Having working as a broadcast and print journalist throughout the South West, she has now settled in Cornwall, with her family, where she writes and teaches.
