Estates and their owners come and go, but Trelowarren, on the edge of Goonhilly Downs, can point to 1,000 years of recorded history, the last 600 years in the hands of the Vyvyan family. For Sir Ferrers Vyvyan, it remains a work in progress. “Trelowarren is living history, not corporate heritage,” he says. “We want to maintain a traditional working estate that people can share with us.”
Sir Ferrers will be opening The Village Green Society Lectures with a talk entitled ‘People and Landscape’. One not to be missed.
