AUTHOR: Gerald Trethowan & Liz Moore
The Book of Constantine (pdf e-book)
The Book of Constantine (pdf e-book)
  • Description

Constantine - The Parish Yesterday and Today is a reflection of times past and a continuing sense of belonging that exists in the community.

Chapters include hamlets of the parish; Constantine's industries (farming, mining, quarrying); the parish in World War Two; the parish's historic farmhouses; its churches and chapels; education; the parish council; shops; entertainment and leisure; sports; transport; local folk of note; and the conversion of the local redundant chapel into the Tolmen Centre.

As the authors say in the introduction to the book:

We are well aware that Charles Hendersonís Constantine in Cornwall is the work of a master historian and bound to cast a shadow over the efforts of any attempts to follow in his footsteps. However, as amateurs and literary virgins we have attempted to produce an updated and slightly more light-hearted version which we hope will have some appeal to the readers of today. We must emphasise that this is very much a team effort. Many people have been kind enough to write articles on their specialist subjects and we are anxious that their contributions should be acknowledged. The appeal for photographs has brought an overwhelming response. More than 60 people have been willing to lend us their treasured mementoes and we feel proud to have been honoured with their trust.

History is not an exact science; even Henderson made a few errors, and we hope readers will forgive any mistakes or omissions. This book could not have been produced without the support of the people of Constantine and we hope that it will give pleasure to present-day readers and a glimpse of Constantine to future generations.
