Thursday 1st August 2013

Couch's Mill as featured in the Who Do You Think You Are episode with Nigel HaversOn 31st July, Boconnoc featured in the BBC programme ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ with Nigel Havers.

Actor Nigel Havers delved into his family history, tracing his family to Couch's Mill just outside Boconnoc. Havers followed his mother's line initially, an investigation that took him to this tucked away gem of a village, where he uncovered the story of illegitimacy, childhood loss and that his great great grandfather, David Couch was a flour miller. Such a stark contrast to his world of film and television. His ancestors are buried in the beautiful Boconnoc Parish Church graveyard.
