Timothy Tuck, Cornish teacher

You never quite know when – or where – you’ll turn up on the net.

But even I was a little surprised to find myself (and one of my musicals) in the footnotes to “Cornish Wrecking, 1700-1860: Reality and Popular Myth” (Cathryn Pearce).

Even more surprising is to discover I’m actually a Cornish teacher…

I have to admit to some links with Cornwall. Just up the road from us in South Australia is the historic Moonta township (‘one of the three towns in the ‘Copper Triangle’) ¬†settled by Cornish miners. I did also visit Cornwall a few years ago but make no claims to any Cornish blood, as I was born in Welwyn Garden City.

Still, it is nice to have ‘Wreckers’ (one of my favourite productions) footnoted so.
