Ponsharden Open Day

On Sunday, 10 September, from 2-4pm, there will be an Open Day at the Jewish Cemetery and Dissenters’ Burying Ground (also known as Congregationalists) at Ponsharden in Falmouth adjacent to Sainsburys Store. Keith Pearce, historian and authority on Cornish Jewish cemeteries will be on hand to discuss the background and personages buried in the Jewish cemetery and Dissenter historians, Rob Nunn and Tom Weller, will lecture about the adjacent Dissenters Burying Ground. Both cemeteries are presently undergoing restoration led by Falmouth Town Council with the help of  the Friends of Ponsharden Cemeteries. An application to the Heritage Lottery Fund is being submitted to raise the additional necessary funds. The open day is in conjunction with the European Days of Jewish Culture and Heritage.  Parking available at Park and Float/Ride car park.
