Workman's Club was situated on the site of the gift shop
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
In the 1940s the club was dismantled and it was used as a Scout Hut for many
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
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.
