Our walking group hits the St Ives coast path

The weather though cloudy was surprisingly mild for our walk from Lelant to St Ives. Our route took us along the coastal path with all the wonderful views of St Ives Bay up to Godrevy.

We had two pitstops – sitting outside for coffee with our doggy friends Ruby and Norman at Carbis Bay Hotel, and then lunch in St Ives. After a hearty bowl of soup we walked back to Lelant for a second helping of the views.

We’re very sorry for those of you who weren’t able to be there because of work commitments. But next year our Christmas meal will be in the evening, so you won’t miss out!

St. Ives Archive

I think we all enjoyed last night’s talk by Janet Axten about Tom Heron, Alec Walker and Crysede. For those of you who’d like to learn a little more, do consider a visit to the St. Ives Archive office. They’ve got a big binder full of Crysede-related photos, old newspaper advertising, etc. It’s fascinating stuff!

t0296The Archive is located upstairs above the Parish Rooms behind the War Memorial Gardens just opposite the church, and is open from 10am-4pm, Tuesday through Friday. It’s got lots of information for anyone doing genealogical research or just for people interested in local history and has a massive collection of lovely old photos of St. Ives.
