||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.
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.
include: Waterwheels from Cornish mining industry Cobblers shop with exhibition
on the History of Wayside Mill Building, with original machinery and millstones
