Heritage roadshow to preserve Cornish prehistoric sites
A roving display takes to the road to highlight a major bid to help conserve and manage a significant area of landscape in South East Cornwall (England). Its aim is to raise awareness about the Caradon Hill Area Heritage Project and the special features of the area's landscape, which includes moorland, farmland, wooded steep valleys, industrial remains and Neolithic sites such as Trethevy Quoit.
The display is one phase of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid planned by Caradon District Council and Cornwall County Council for next year, which could secure funds for restoration, preservation and enhancement work suggested by the community. The proposed project area covers around 58 square miles to the north of Liskeard, centred around Caradon Hill.
The area is of great heritage and environmental importance, with part lying within an area of outstanding natural beauty and the remainder in an area of great landscape value.
The display includes information about the project plus photographs and pieces describing the area's qualities. The roadshow will be on display at Liskeard and District Museum from November 17 to 20; St Cleer Memorial Hall from November 21 to 27; Upton Cross Primary School from November 28 to December 4; Pensilva Millennium House from December 5 to 11; and Minions Heritage Centre from December 12 onwards.
