Hello and welcome to Cornwall Yesteryear; this is a new website started by Terry Harry & Nancy Hembroke.
It was put into action during the isolation period caused by the Coronavirus in March 2020. Terry, who is St Day born and bred, started ‘Cornwall Today, Yesterday and Dreckly’ magazine in 1994. He has been a photographer for more years than he cares to recall and was lucky enough to attend Redruth Grammar School.
Nancy lives in Bude and has the onerous task of collating, typing the articles and proof reading.
Of course, she also has to put up with Terry……………. poor lady.
Both Nancy & Terry feel it is time for another magazine dedicated to and all
about Cornwall, its people, culture and history. This time it will be available
online; it is free and will remain so.
If you, or your organisation, have anything connected with Cornwall you would like to see online please contact us. This might be some childhood memories, information on famous Cornish people, details of your Cornish-loving organisations and, of course, photos both old and new.
We hope you enjoy all of the articles and photos on this site and keep coming back because we are hoping to have a massive collection. It has been started with lots of articles from the original Cornwall Today which we hope you enjoy.
Please feel free to share anything from the site, please just give us a mention to spread the word, and tell your contacts that this site is free to everyone.
We must say a huge thank you to Steven Webb for his help and consideration, he is a diamond.
Nancy & Terry
