Wayside Folk Museum
Wayside Folk Museum Until 1800 pack animals and sledges conveyed goods to Zennor as, remote and inaccessible by the natural features of land and sea, there were no roads. This isolation gave the area long continuance with ancient implements and customs.
Against this background Colonel 'Freddie' Hirststarted gathering together relics peculiar to Zennor which led to the richness of the Wayside Museum collection. Now, over 60 years later, the collection has over 5,000 items in 16 display areas and includes an extensive collection of photographs and information on people who have lived in the area.
