Crying the Neck
July 30 @ 6:00 pm| Free
Crying the Neck will be held a bit earlier this year by Liskeard Old Cornwall Society as our new venue has Winter Barley waiting to be cut. We’ll be starting the Ceremony at 6.00pm on Friday July 30th and following the same programme as St. Ives OCS when they pioneered the first revival of this centuries old Cornish tradition back in1928.
Everyone is welcome to help us to keep this Harvest celebration alive and enjoy the wonderful wildflowers around the field in Pengover Green, map ref: SX27955 65166, postcode PL14 3NH.
From the A390 at Merrymeet take either of the lanes signposted Pengover and you’ll find us on your left at the crossroads in the hamlet. Parking is in the field itself, but if it’s full please park sensibly in one of the lanes.
After the Ceremony has ended and Trelawny has been sung, you’ll be welcome to linger awhile and enjoy the views, and please bring a picnic with you if you wish. Wearing of masks will not be required, but whatever the rules are at the time, there’ll be ample space to enable social distancing.
