Gabbroic Pottery

New project Cornish Life Stories

Cornish Life Stories is a pilot project creating 3 x micro films to give a voice to the Museum of Cornish Life's fascinating artefacts.

Interviews in the Helston and Lizard area were undertaken with support with volunteers to develop a 'memories archive' for the Museum. This legacy of capturing local Cornish voices will create context and resonance to the selected artefacts.

The films tell the story of the following artefacts:

A sherd of Gabbroich Pottery

A 'train staff' used on Helston Railway

The Porthallow Chapel Sunday School Banner
