2019 Programme

Our venue for inside events is Marazion Community Centre (TR17 0HW), in Gwallon Lane, Marazion.  Gwallon Lane is opposite the Fire Engine Inn (on the coastal side of the main street in the Marazion to Helston direction) and there is a signpost for the surgery, which is next door to the hall.  Plenty of free parking. 

Unless otherwise stated, talks/presentations normally start at 2 pm on Saturdays, with tea and biscuits and discussions/question and answer sessions at the end of the afternoon.

If you are attending an outside event organised by Trencrom Dowsers, you are deeming yourself fit to cope with the physical activity.  Field trips may at times involve substantial distances on uneven and slippery ground.  Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing.

For further details of events please contact Jill Moss on 01736 740093 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

This website is continually updated.  Any provisional dates will be confirmed as soon as possible.  For our Privacy Statement, please see our Welcome page.

 

As appropriate, our speakers' website addresses will be added to the Links on this site.

 

Please note: Dowsing tuition is not available during our dowsing trips or other meetings.  If you are interested in learning how to dowse, or to extend your skills, please click on the Dowsing courses' tab at the top of the page.

 

For reports on the trips and presentations please go to Events and and then the particular year. 

 

Time to be out and about dowsing again, picnics prepared and dowsing rods polished.  If there is a particular site you are interested in dowsing, preferably somewhere where the group hasn't already been, please contact Jill.  We're aiming for a dowsing trip to Bodmin moor this year.

 

Sunday 17 March: Chûn Castle and Chûn Quoit

We visited the Castle in 2015 but since then the area has been extensively cleared - so more dowsing opportunities!   Chûn Castle was built 3 BCE and was originally thought to have had 20ft high walls.  Clearly a defensive structure with an excellent vantage point.

Chûn Quoit was built in the Neolithic era and is thought to be a sacred monument connecting the living to the dead. This is a significant site, and in good condition, probably in use for hundred of years.

Directions: take the Penzance to Madron Road, drive through Madron, past Lanyon Quoit.  Just after the Mên-an-Tol car park area turn left down the road signposted to Chûn Castle.

The parking/meeting place is at Trehyllis Farm, post code TR20 8NP, map reference SW409337.

Quite a steep path, rough in places.  If you're bringing a dog, please keep it on a lead.

 

Details of our dowsing trips through the spring and summer to follow but planned so far are these:

 

Sunday 5 May: International Dowsing Day

IDD is held at the weekend closest to Hamish Miller's birthday and every year we celebrate, either on Trencrom Hill, Carn Lês Boel (the first/last node point of the Michael and Mary energy currents) or as in May 2018, those two and a series of ancient wells in between.  (Please look at our past events to see reports).

This year we'll celebrate on Hamish's birthday on the 5th - so let's make it a particularly special occasion.  The theme for this year will be 'Hilltops', which are such significant points in any landscape.  Details to follow.

 

Saturday/Sunday 25/26 May: Pathways to the Past

CASPN's (Cornish Ancient Sites Potection Network) highly successful annual weekend of walks and talks in West Penwith.  This will be the 13th consecutive year of this event.  

 

And looking far ahead to autumn 2019

 

October: Speaker in the pipeline!    Date and details to be confirmed.

 

Saturday 9 November: Peter Knight and Sue Wallace.  Albion Dreamtime: re-enchanting the Isle of Dragons. 

We are delighted to welcome Peter and Sue again, this time to tell of their quest to 100 of Britain's natural sacred places, consciously connecting with mythological landscapes.
