Nostalgic memories of West Pentire's local history

Share your own memories of West Pentire and read what others have said

For well over 10 years now, we've been inviting visitors to our web site to add their own memories to share their experiences of life as it was when the photographs in our archive were taken. From brief one-liners explaining a little bit more about the image depicted, to great, in-depth accounts of a childhood when things were rather different than today (and everything inbetween!). We've had many contributors recognising themselves or loved ones in our photographs. Why not add your memory today and become part of our Memories Community to help others in the future delve back into their past.

I started work at the Fistral Bay Hotel as receptionist. It was such a lovely place, even with the GHOST. I left work there in 2006. I miss the people and the place. It is such a sad sight now. I still wish it was going as a hotel. It is a amazing building and could be made good again, yes I know with a lot of (...Read full memory)

We - that means my brothers  and I - arrived at the home from Kent and although we were very small at the time we grew to know this as home.
