"The Western Rising" PowerPoint by Jenny Wilson

Feniton History Group  Thurs 14th Nov 2013 in Feniton Church
Jenny's presentation was very well received.  It gave the reasons for the uprising, the lost of the Celtic status of Cornwall and being forced to abandon the old ways and accept the Protestant Book of Common Prayer in 1549. Cornwall saw itself as a separate nation.
Beautifully illustrated with slides of Cornwall along with  the sounds of bloody battle and men on the march.
It is heart wrenching to think of the barbarity of these events, the battles of Fenny Bridges, Alfington, Aylesbeare, Clyst St. Mary and the siege of Exeter.
These important events seem lost to time and not really mentioned in today's Histories. Jenny's research fills that gap.
The evening raised £130 which was split between the Philippines Disaster and ME research.

I would like to thank  Jenny, the church  and the Group members for all their help on the night to make this a very successful evening.
