Kresen Kernow Tour

Kresen Kernow is Cornwall’s brand new, state-of-the-art archive centre. Constructed in the Brewhouse of the former Redruth Brewery, this beautiful building is a new public space for Cornwall, opened last September.  As well as 1.5 million records covering 850 years of history, Kresen Kernow has bright and airy research rooms, and has made magical use of the original architecture of the brewery.
We were shown around the public areas and the, usually private, strong rooms and it was fascinating. Our guide was brilliant with lots of knowledge bringing local history alive. They plan on having  every book written in Cornwall, about Cornwall or by Cornish authors and my Dad’s work is there! They don’t have every one of his books and said they would certainly welcome the copies that they are missing.  We plan on donating all the missing copies.
Join us on this brief tour. They run regular tours so if you get the chance, go along. It is the most amazing resource for us all to enjoy.
