2019 Programme

APOLOGIES FOR THE LACK OF RECENT PHOTOS.  THERE IS A GLITCH ON THIS WEBSITE WHICH REFUSES TO ALLOW PHOTOS AT PRESENT.  ALL WILL RESOLVED SOON!

 

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.  

PLEASE NOTE: The areas that we love to visit are also loved by ticks!  Cornwall Wildlife Trust has advised us to be aware of this. There is plenty of helpful information on https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/lyme-disease-signs-and-symptoms

And now it's 2020:   NEW WEBSITE TO APPEAR SOON SO THERE WILL BE A 2020 SECTION - HONEST!

 

Saturday 21 March, 2 pm: 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.

 

And now, we're out dowsing each month, (except August), usually on Sunday afternoons.

 

Sunday 19 April: Bosullow Trehyllys

Near Chûn, this is a courtyard settlement, second only to Chysauster despite not being excavated.  Details to follow.

 

Sunday 26 April: Dowsing for Beginners 1-day workshop at Marazion.  See 'Dowsing Courses' for details.   Friendly, informal and fun but an excellent grounding in basic dowsing. Limited to a small group so please apply soon.  

 

Sunday 3 May:  International Dowsing Day - our annual celebration, along with local groups all over the UK and beyond.  No details yet but we hope to end the day, as always, at the beautiful headland of Carn Lês Boel, near Land's End, first/last node point of the Michael/Mary energies.  There will doubtless be a cakey tea built into the day, somewhere along the way.  

 

May 30th and 31st: 'Pathways to the Past' organised by CASPN (Cornish Ancient Sites Protection Network).

This will be the 14th year of these highly successful weekends of walks and talks among the ancient sites of west Cornwall.  For more information please visit: www.cornishancientsites.com

 

June 13th and 14th: South-west DFest.

Following 2018's very successful 'get-together' of south-west dowsing groups: Devon Dowsers, Tamar Dowsers, Somerset Dowsers and Trencrom Dowsers, (and dowsers from far and wide), here is another weekend of workshops, talks and walks to ancient sites, based at South Zeal, Dartmoor.   More details to follow!

 

Sunday 28 June: Roundwood Quay, on the Fal.  Late Iron Age fort.    Details to follow.

 

Sunday 26 July: Bosiliack Barrow and settlement SW 431342

On the moorland north of Lanyon Quoit, the chamber is directly aligned to midwinter sunrise.  The settlement consisted of 10 round houses.  Details to follow.

 

August: retreat from the crowds and traffic!

 

Sunday 6 September: Trip to Treryn Dinas (Treen)  SW 39 7221

This impressive Iron Age cliff fort is between Porthcurno and Penberth and is well worth a visit.  Date and details to follow.

 

October:  Plen an Gwarry, St Just

Something different!   We've been thinking about dowsing the Plen, an ancient "Playing Place" in the centre of St Just, for several years.  And not just because it's close to the "Dog and Rabbit" for cakey tea!   Date and details to follow.

 

November: Depending on the weather, we're back to Marazion for our inside winter programme now.  Or outside trips if the sun continues to shine.

 

And then, before you know it, it's holly and mistletoe again!
