26 Places in Cornwall / 26 Tyller yn Kernow

Combining photography and poetry, this unique show will take you on an A-Z journey in photography and poetry through 26 Cornish places and their richly resonant names.

You’ll discover some remarkable places you’ve probably never heard of and hidden aspects of some you thought you knew.

Angarrack, Halliggye Fogou, Feock, Nancekuke, Zennor… How did these places get their names and what can these tell us about Cornwall’s language, culture and deep history?
