We were delighted to be holding our AGM at Kresen Kernow, Cornwall’s new archive centre which secured £11.7m funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2015.

Kresen Kernow is an exemplary modern archive and library space, bringing together the world’s largest collection of manuscripts, books and documents related to Cornwall, as well as Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and the Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Record, for the first time.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council, Kresen Kernow provides a bespoke building, excellent digital facilities, dynamic volunteering opportunities and a diverse range of events, exhibitions and activities, which will improve access and attract wider audiences to celebrate and share in Cornwall’s rich and distinct history.

Kresen Kernow will also safeguard the historic Redruth Brewery building at the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site in Redruth.

The building officially opens in Sept 2019 and we are really pleased to have secured an early visit for RIBA and CAT members.
