£82k grant for museum


The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum has been awarded an £82k grant from the Arts Council.

The funding will go towards preserving and redisplaying objects from its collection.

Collections manager, Charlotte Dando, said: “Many of our objects are unique dating back over 150 years, and all have specific preservation needs.

“The award from Arts Council England will fund conservation grade cases that will showcase these beautiful and important objects whilst ensuring they can be admired by future generations.”


  1. It would be good to reduce the entrance fee if possible,we turned away recently as with the car parking fee felt it was too expensive….or refund parking fee at admission.  I feel lots of businesses and communities  must lose revenue as people drive away rather than pay extortionate parking fees!
