Available from these sellers.

Book Description

Nov 2004 Halsgrove Parish History
Probus lies in central, southern Cornwall at the head of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. Known in Cornish as Lanbrebois, 'the holy site of Probus',its origins lie with the fifth century Celtic Christian community, named after Saint Probus. Probus has always been an agricultural and agrarian parish, which flourished on sheep farming, wool, and the skills of its horticulturalists. In the past it was known as the 'garden parish of Cornwall'. The village is traditionally famous for two icons: its granite church tower and the famous Jubilee Lamp in the village square. Intimately connected with the village is the estate of Trewithen, which has a history as interesting as Probus itself, and which has assisted enormously with the village's development over time.

This is another book in the Halsgrove Parish History series, reminding us of the people and places that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future.
