Charles Mannell and George Penrose admiring the view at Chapel Rock, Trenowth (near Grampound Road) in the parish of Probus, Cornwall. 17th June 1904

This image is mentioned in the Royal Institution of Cornwall's (RIC) Newsletter dated 20th October 1996 "Additions to the photographic collection - one of interest to the RIC taken at Chapel Rock, Trenowth on 17 June 1904. Standing is a Mr Charles Mannell, but seated is George Penrose, then in his fourth year as Curator at our museum. The RIC's excursion on 18 August 1903 had been to the area where Sir Robert Harvey, President 1901-03, had recently built a bungalow. It is likely that Penrose returned to examine the Iron Age camps and three chapels or oratories in the vicinity, one of them having stood at Chapel Rock". Photographer: Unknown

Sir Robert Harveys bungalow at Trenowth (near Grampound Road) in the parish of Probus, Cornwall. 17th June 1904 Featured Grampound Print

Sir Robert Harveys bungalow at Trenowth (near Grampound Road) in the parish of Probus, Cornwall. 17th June 1904

By 1996 the bungalow had been much altered into two cottages and the cottage on the right named Bat Lodge. Cornishman, Robert Harvey (1847-1930) was a prominent producer in the nitrate industry of the late 1800s, making his fortune in Bolivia, Peru and Chile before returning to Cornwall in 1885. On his return, he purchased Trenowth Estate and invested in the Cornish tourism industry by going into partnership with architect Silvanus Trevail, George Hicks and John Jose to form the Cornish Hotels Company. He served as High Sheriff in both Devon and Cornwall towards the turn of the century and was knighted in 1901. He also served as President of the Royal Institution of Cornwall between 1901-1903.
