Protecting our Historical Heritage

Protecting our historical heritage

Earlier this year local residents were concerned about the removal of two historic granite stiles from the footpath that links Porthpean to Pentewan Road and Higher Porthpean.  Cornwall Council's Historic Environment Service, landowners and the Outdoor Education Centre have been collaborating and these stiles are to be reinstated.  

Charlestown Cask Banks
The Parish Council has applied for the Cask Banks to be listed by English Heritage.  The outcome of the application could take a while but the council felt it was important to protect these valuable (and rare) areas of land.
