Historical Items - extracts from directories and local papers
St Gerent, A Cornish Saint - a booklet by Rev Canon Gilbert H Doble M.A. published in 1938 about St Gerent and the history of Gerrans. The PDF file is 2.2Mb and is as clear as I can get it, the binding making it difficult to scan.
The Story of S. Gerrans with S. Anthony in Roseland - a small pamphlet about the history of the two churches originally published in 1952. The PDF file is about 3Mb so please be patient while it loads!
Tidal Mills of Gerrans - an article by Hilary Thompson
Life at Porthcurnick - an article by Hilary Thompson
History of Portscatho Independent Chapel by Hilary Thompson
The Wells, Shutes & Springs of Gerrans Parish edited & compiled by Hilary Thompson
Around St Gerrans - a small booklet which I believe to be an un-copyrighted booklet of images of original works by the late Margaret Morcom of Gerrans along with some historical information on the village and its environs.
The Story of Place - a souvenir booklet by Edward Harte about the history of Place, its church and house. The PDF file is about 3Mb so please be patient while it loads!
Place, St Anthony in Roseland - a holiday brochure from 1955 written by Edward Harte. This gives an interesting insight into Place and the UK holiday trade in the fifties. With thanks to Graham Parkes for making this available. Note that the file is about 4Mb so patience is required.
1920s Auction Catalogue for properties in Gerrans (Parton Vrane, Porth Cornick & Higher Tregassa) - this is just an extract of the relevant pages from the auction catalogue (kindly provided by Malc McCarthy) and is a 3Mb PDF file. If you would like to see the whole catalogue then feel free to download it from here - but be warned that it's a big file (6Mb).
