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 14 April: Dowsing trip to Carn Brea, near Camborne.

TODAY'S EVENT HAS JUST BEEN CANCELLED.  DESPITE GREAT OPTIMISM WE HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE WEATHER IS PLAIN AWFUL.  WE'LL RESCHEDULE FOR SUNDAY 30 JUNE 

This is one of the most important archaeological sites in Cornwall, with a tor enclosure built 6000 years ago and evidence of occupation from that time up to the present day: traces of Iron Age round houses, rectangular lean-to houses and then there's yet another Giant with his well!

Directions: Postcode TR16 6SL.  SW 6860 4080.  From the village of Carnkie, take the road signposted 'Carn Brea castle'.  Caution - the final stretch is a rough track with a few potholes and speed bumps!

We'll meet at 2 pm.  There is parking for approximately 8-10 cars but if it's possible to car-share, please do so, in case there are already several cars on the hill.  

Please note: for those with difficulties with mobility, this will be a good dowsing trip as we shall be parked almost on the summit, so there will be very little walking, along an easy path.

And the view from here is magnificent!

 

Sunday 5 May: International Dowsing Day

We celebrate IDD every year, 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).

The theme for this year will be 'Hilltops', such significant points in any landscape.  Details to follow but we'll surely end the day at the wonderful headland of Carn Lês Boel.  And the sunset will be glorious!

 

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.  Please see CASPN's website: www.cornishancientsites.com

 

Sunday 30 June: Dowsing trip to Carn Brea, near Camborne

As we were forced to cancel this trip in April, today will be unbelievably glorious.  A great site - all details in 14th April post.

 August -  we stay off the roads!

Saturday 12 October: Dr Andrew Tresidder.   Details to follow.

 

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.   

 

Saturday 7 December: Davyd and Emma Farrell: Plant Consciousness

More details to follow but Davyd and Emma will be selling their range of flower essences, including the newly-added Snowdrop.  

 

And looking forward to 2020:

Saturday 21 March: Don Bryan: Seeing is believing

Don, a guide at Stonehenge and Chair of Hampshire Archaeology Dowsers will be coming down to give us a talk today. He will explain how archaeological dowsing on a wide range of sites can be backed up by either geophysical survey and/or excavation.  This process is slowly being recognised by archaeological experts, especially when reports are completed on our work. Several examples of such work will be included in this presentation.
