 The Workman's Club was situated on the site of the gift shop 'Cats Whiskers, 
and on the right hand side of the building can be seen Cook's, Newsagent shop.
 
Cooks new shop was also built on the site. Next door was Fry's Garage.
In the 1940s the club was dismantled and it was used as a Scout Hut for many years.

               Above is Stacey's Greengrocers (Now Spar Shop), this was one of many corrugated iron buildings in the village including H.C.Cook's .
The final one remaining is the building next door to Merlins Gift Shop (Picture above). The Tintagel Social Hall holds many activities including the meeting place of Tintagel Parish Council,
Tintagel Short Mat Bowls Club, monthly auctions and many other events.
During and after the war years the Social Hall was the local cinema every Monday night and also the venue for numerous whist drives and the Saturday night regular Dance Hall.
The Old Schoolroom was used as the local primary school before the 1939-45 war. It returned to use as the school for the evacuees who came to the village in the war years.
It was closed in about 1943 and the pupils then attended the school at Treven. Since this time the building has been used for church activities, concerts, jumble sales and other events.
At one time there was talk of developing the site but happily this will not be the case now.
