FIRST WORLD WAR EX­HI­BI­TION

Cornwall Life - - COUNTRYSIDE LIFE -

Not many peo­ple are aware that the Na­tional Trust’s Cote­hele House near Sal­tash is a war memo­rial. To com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of the First World War this year there is an ex­hi­bi­tion of per­sonal items loaned to Cote­hele by mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The ex­hi­bi­tion in the Break­fast Room of the house has the theme

in­spired by the Wilfred Owen poem. To co­in­cide with the ex­hi­bi­tion and the an­nual Christ­mas gar­land in the Great Hall at Cote­hele is an art­work by West Coun­try artist Do­minique Coif­fait, in­spired by the ebb and flow of life in Cote­hele gar­den which will wind around the walls of the Great Hall.
