ISOT News: Getting back to normal

Behind the scenes work conquers Covid

Although the ISOT committee was unable to meet during lockdown there was plenty going on behind the scenes, in particular a plaque for the wall by the Well Street well.

     There was also a dig at Newhouse Farm. A trench across the site from the bridge to the back produced five bags of pottery fragments. The remains of a medieval roof were found and a large piece of Pentewan stone.

     So things are beginning to get back to normal and the next meeting in the Well Street Chapel is scheduled for October 19. Top of the agenda is the exhibition we will be holding in the church.

     Orders are coming in for the 2022 Calendar which is made up of old photographs of Tywardreath and St Blazey. The project was made possible by Jenny Moore, the mayor of St Blazey, so our thanks for her.

     Only 200 are being produced so get your order in soon: £5 each. Either call Helen Barden on 07759 349 581 or email –

     Fund raising continued at an open day on September 25 which became a curtain raiser for the ‘Times and People Remembered’ exhibition which is planned for St Andrew’s church November 8-13.

     The attractions will include Cornish Bard Mac Water who will talk about his albums of photographs and postcards, artefacts that ISOT has found, priory stones and various recorded memories.

     Children will be able to design their own seal on the lines on the one shown on the right. Donations will be shared between ISOT and the village Defibrillation Fund.

     There was also a bingo night on October 1. A £5 ticket allowed six games of bingo and a pasty. The cash raised will go to St Andrew’s Church fabric fund.
