> 150 years ago, leftover scraps of meat or fish were mixed with root vegetables to make the traditional filling of the Cornish pasty. > The pasty crust was rarely eaten my miners because of the poisonous chemicals they had on their hands (including arsenic). They would hold the crust, eat everything around it and throw the crust away. > The first reference to pasty can be linked to Cornwall. A baker from Cornwall wrote to Jane Seymour saying “hope this pasty reaches you in better condition than the last one.”

> The first ever wind turbine was constructed in Redruth in 1892. > The first house in the world to be lit by Gas is in Redruth - installed by William Murdock in 1794. > Despite the rain, Cornwall is the sunniest county in Great Britain, getting at least 1,500 hours of sunshine a year. > In 2005 there were as many registered sheep living in Cornwall as there were people!

From 1931 until the day she died in 1983.
