Wednesday 8 May 2019 - Evening Visit to St Anthony in Roseland

6pm - 8pm Wednesday 8th May 2019

Meet at Gerrans Car Park, Treloan Lane

During the Evening Visit we shall visit the Battery, Lighthouse and Drake’s Well at St Anthony, as well as looking at items of interest at Place, including the House, Creek, Cellars and Church. If time permits, we shall then go on to Bohortha and Froe. We are very grateful to Hilary Thompson and Nev Meek for composing the notes to guide us for the evening. Parking at the sites we are visiting is very limited and so we shall be travelling by Roseland Community Bus. Advance booking is therefore essential to secure your place.
