We are delighted to announce the publication of Churks, Clidgy and Doodle-Dashers – Hayle Tales and Trails Third Edition.
This hugely popular local history book was first published in 2010, born out of Hayle Oral History Project which sought to collect, preserve and share memories of life in Hayle.
The stories in the book are captivating, enlightening and often heart-warming…
“Never wanted a holiday ’cause I’ve everything I’ve ever wanted from life in Hayle. […] I loved to go down on the weir, dig bait and when you had the weather go off in the country, pick blackberries […]. Lovely. Happy as larks, now what I want to pay to go on holiday for?” – Winnie Bassett
Alongside the interview transcriptions, the book is packed to the brim with pictures, articles and local walking routes. The new Third Edition boasts freshly unearthed historic photographs and essays from first-time contributors.
“A decade on from its first release, the latest editions of Churks, Clidgy and Doodle-Dashers offers new perspectives on the history of this remarkable town – from the mighty industries that dominated its landscape to the lives of ordinary people and everyday experiences. It also provides an insight into the ways in which we care for and interpret Hayle’s heritage. A must for every bookshelf.” – Daisy Culmer, Curator (Hayle Heritage Centre)
