Lerryn Photo Archive
Wednesday 21st July 2010
Quite a number of years ago, Esthermary Todd initiated a project to collect photographs of places, events and people in and around Lerryn, with the purpose of preserving these for the interest of present and future generations. The voluntary group, led by Esthermary, spent many hours copying and storing the photos on the computers at Lerryn Memorial Hall.
Towards the end of 2008, Esthermary, having moved to Lostwithiel, was no longer able to maintain the archive and decided to entrust Lerryn Memorial Hall committee with the responsibility of managing and expanding this valuable source of local history.
The photographs were edited, sorted by decade and relevant information attached. This work was undertaken by Michael Fenwick and Esthermary. The collection of photographs has now been made available for publishing on this website. They are also available on a CD which can be purchased from the village shop. Some examples of these old photographs are shown below:
A very big thank you to Esthermary and Michael who have put many hours of work into this project. If you would like to see more of these photos then click on Photo Archive in the list to the left of this page
