A quotation from the internet declares that ‘The Lanhydrock Atlas is a remarkable survival. Each of its 258 highly decorated maps, delicately painted and decorated in water colour and gold leaf on sturdy vellum, opens a door into the lost world of the 17th century and brings to life not only the physical lie of the land but the stories of the people and their lives.’ The original atlas recorded the widespread properties, shown field by field, owned by the Robartes family of Lanhydrock throughout much of Cornwall. Paul Holden, one of the contributors to a complete reproduction of the Atlas, will be the speaker at the meeting of Lostwithiel Old Cornwall Society on Tuesday April 25th at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall. Non members welcome. For further information about Lostwithiel Old Cornwall Society please contact Mary Jones on 01208 873 504
