Brenda - For the Love of Cornwall

Brenda - For the Love of Cornwall

Describes as 'probably the most famous Cornishwoman in the world', an intimate and thorough account of the life and times of Brenda Wootton, Cornwall's first lady of song.

Shedding a nostalgic light on Cornish village life, the arts scene, the 'folk revival', and the resurgence of interest in the Cornish language, the story also tackles what it really means to be Cornish. At times hilarious, at times harrowing, her fascinating life story is presented by Sue Ellery-Hill, who watched and assisted in her mother's stratospheric rise to international stardom.

Cove Diary's Guide to Sennen Cove

Price: 6.99

Quantity:

This guide is written for the broad-minded visitor who does not mind a bit of humour with his or her history and a fairly tongue-in-cheek approach to being guided about the little huddle of houses clinging to the cliff known as Sennen Cove.

It is the best complete guide on Sennen Cove in existence, mainly because it is the only complete guide on Sennen Cove in existence, although neither of those comments may be true as the author did not check first.
About The Author
The author springs from a short lived Cornish coal mining dynasty which spurned the advice of experts that the smart money was in tin. Subsequent forays into inshore whaling - "you only need to catch one instead of millions of they pilchards" - and carrot farming - "people will have 'em in a pasty, you see" - were also met with derision and dismal failure leaving the author no choice but to earn a living writing books, which is why he runs a shop in the Far West of Cornwall.
