ISBN: 9781841144948
AUTHOR: Moira Tangye
The Book of St Ervan (pdf e-book)
The Book of St Ervan (pdf e-book)
  • Description

Moira Tangye has been having a love affair with St Ervan for 30 years and the esteem in which she is held is mirrored in the fact that she has obtained over 250 photographs.

They range from a prehistoric longstone to a prizewinning scarecrow at the Royal Cornwall Show in 1983.

We see Mr Sandry with his newly purchased fleet of Morris lorries in 1935 and a Methodist Sunday-school treat around 1910.

A contrasting cast parades here: the Revd Henry Nowell Barton, parson and squire for six decades, Richard Brewer, yeoman, miller and maltster, the St Ervan cricketers playing ‘overseas’, a trip to Scilly; James Rundle, who died aged 53, leaving a wife and 14 children, the travelling preacher Elizabeth Dart, another cleric, Hugh Molesworth, who did so much for the weekday schooling of local children – and many others.

Wonderful names pepper the pages: Curgenven, Trevaskis, Brenton and Kessell are just some of them.The older images, in particular, are hugely evocative, recalling a mood and way of life that have gone – and will never come back. Looking at them, we realise the old-school editors were correct: a good picture is worth a thousand words.

But we need this caring scribe to interpret the stories behind the picture. Moira’s words and these illustrations combine to make a marvellous cocktail. A joy for us today and coming generations.
