Passing of a Great Cornishman

It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of our former Chairman and honorary life member Craig Weatherhill. Craig had been suffering from poor health for a few years but in spite of this he continued with his work and research and his publications. His death will be a great loss to the world of Cornish studies. Just a week ago he was awarded the Gorsedh Community Award following a recommendation from Agan Tavas.

Craig was widely known as a historian, especially of the West Penwith area, a place-names specialist and an artist of historic places. His greatest love was horses and he was never more happy then when he was researching the West Penwith area on horse back.

A great loss is his death to Cornwall and many friends.
