Wadebridge and District Memory Day

Share your memories at Wadebridge and District Memory Day ‘Landmark Travels- Our Past in a Suitcase’,  a partnership project involving Storylines, the Institute of Cornish Studies and Cornwall Heritage Trust, will be linking up with Wadebridge and District Museum to host a Memory Day in Wadebridge. This will be held at both the Exchange (Molesworth Street), and Wadebridge and District Museum (Chapel Lane) on Monday 21st September from 1-5pm and is open to all.

This social event will include a display of archive photographs from Wadebridge and the surrounding area and will provide opportunities for people to share their own memories over tea/coffee and cake. Helen Rawe, a Trustee of the Museum, says “We welcome people to bring along any photographs they have of the area to share with others and add to the archives. It’s so important to gather and preserve memories and photographs so that this information isn't lost to future generations.

Wadebridge has a fascinating past, for example, does everyone realize that
Wadebridge had a railway service ahead of London?’
The stories, memories and information collected during this Memory Day will
become part of the wider project, ‘Landmark Travels’ which is working with schools and communities throughout Cornwall to unearth the stories, traditions and histories connected with landmarks and places. This 2-year project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Heritage Trust, involves a range of memory-sharing workshops, study days, exhibitions and events. Further information on the project, and how to get involved, will be available at the Memory Day.

Any questions about the day please contact Helen Rawe on 01208 816206. To find out more about the project you can also visit
