Kresen Kernow – a new home for the stories of Cornwall

Following an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) in November 2012, Cornwall Council received Stage 1 funding to develop its plans; for a new home for Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Historic Environment Record – combining these three fascinating collections and services.

The new building will bring together primary, printed and electronic sources, which include material on and in Cornish, into one centre at the Old Brewery site in Redruth.

Here the collections can be stored, accessed and preserved, and the extraordinary stories that they tell can be used to excite and engage old and new audiences with the heritage of Cornwall.

A Cornwall-wide programme of consultation about the proposed new centre will take place during 2014.

In late 2014 a new application for Stage 2 funding (for over £9 million) will be submitted for the delivery phase of the project, that is, building the centre, moving into it and running the combined service for the first few years.
