Trevose Head In The 1960s

A Memory of Trevose Head.

I was interested to read the lady's memories of the area and of the toll gate ladies at Mother Ivey's Bay. We had a a wonderful May holiday staying at Crugmeer Farm and visiting such places as Trevose Head. I have a lovely photo of my father by the lighthouse. He died last year and this spring we took our sons, now in their twenties to visit this beautiful place in his memory. There were 2 seals playing in the sea.
I was fascinated the lady remembered the two ladies at the toll gate. My mum dubbed them affectionately Mother Ivey's daughters. One had obviously been severely injured in a machinery accident. I never forgot them: for me as a nine year old it was the first time i ever saw someone disfigured in that way. I often wondered what happened to them.
All of this and much more make up my memories of the area.
I agree this is a magical area.
