This illustrated booklet offers a guided walk around the historic town centre of Helston, looking back into the deep geological past of the building stones used in the town’s exceptional built heritage.

Written by Dr Ruth Siddall with contributions from Beth Simons, David Paton and Nick Collins, the publication has been developed from the walk led by Ruth Siddall and David Paton as part of the first Water and Stone in September 2021. CAST is publishing the booklet to coincide with the second edition of Water and Stone, to which Ruth Siddall is again a major contributor. Print copies are available to purchase from CAST Café and the Museum of Cornish Life for the sum of £5.

A pdf of the publication can be viewed here.

The publication has been made possible by the generous support of The Curry Fund.
