 Lostwithiel Museum was opened by the Earl and Countess of Mount Edgcumbe in August 1971, so 2021 will be our 50th Anniversary.

Those who attended the opening included the Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor and Mrs Furse, Chairman of the Old Cornwall Society, Mrs Nicholls and Vice-Chairman Mr M Mayell, supported by members of the Old Cornwall Society and the public.

If you have photographs of relatives or friends who were there we'd very much like to see them. A search through those old photograph albums might reveal just what we're looking for, so if you find a photo, an invitation or write-up of the occasion please contact Christine Walton on 01208 871456. An article, 'The Story of Our Museum,' was published in Lostwithiel Past & Present Vol 3 Number 7 November 2006, available from the Museum.
