The Book of Sticker
  • Description
  • Related

The Book of Sticker is intended to give its readers an insight into the past and more recent history of this ancient Cornish community. As the book leans heavily on visual content it naturally covers the period since the invention of photography in the mid 1800s.

The book is heavily illustrated containing a host of wonderful photographs mainly provided by local people and many of which have not been seen by the public before. Fascinating aspects of everyday life in and around the village are covered, from mining and farming through to shops and businesses, schools, sporting activities and places of worship.

The book reveals the vast changes the place has undergone; for instance where once a hundred miners’ cottages stood, today not a trace of them is to be seen, although the mines that employed them are easily identified by the granite engine house and chimney stacks that stand proudly on the skyline.

Lower Sticker, Paramoor and Hewaswater are also included in the book for the important contribution they have made to make to the local history.

While Peter Twining has been the principal behind The Book of Sticker many other local people have contributed to the compilation of this book through the provision of text, photographs and in providing personal recollections of times past. Research has thrown up many facts previous unrecorded or forgotten, all of which have helped shape the village as it now is, and which make this publication so fascinating for anyone with a connection to Sticker and the region around.
