Hi my name is Elizabeth Dale. I was born on a farm near Falmouth and I can trace my family tree in Cornwall back to 1550. All farmers and bakers and I am more than a little proud of that heritage.
After spending 9 years travelling, visiting more than 50 countries, I came home and realised that some of the best stories and most beautiful sunsets can be found right on my doorstep.
I am passionate about local heritage and preserving our cultural history.
I recently graduated with a First Class degree in Journalism and Creative Writing and I am now a freelance writer, producing articles for local and national magazines and websites.
If you have a story you want told or would just like to contact me, please drop me a line:

I should just add that I am not a professional historian, all the research is my own and I have formed my own opinions and stories from it – nothing should be taken as 100% fact.
