Horace Robert Westlake

Horace was born  at Landlake Farm in November 27th 1895 to  William and Florence Westlake (Nee Harris who died in 1899).  Before joining the Devonshire Regiment he worked at Linnick Farm, South Petherwin for Mr. Bickle. Horace (Private 14662)  served with the 8th Battalion. He was Killed in Action at the Battle of Loos on the 25th September 1915 aged just 19. The Devonshire Regiment were in action at the Battle of Loos and many, like Horace,  lost their lives on the very first day of the offensive where the British used gas for the first time. Horace’s body was never found and is likely to be one of the many at Loos Cemetry  ‘ known only to God’.

Welcome to the official website for the Parish of South Petherwin. The site exists to provide impartial  information past and present for the parish. All Parish council minutes from November 2012 can be found at the Council Minutes page in accordance with  legislation and in the future further information in relation to the Parish Council will also be available from this site. The aim is to make as much as possible available online so that everyone can be kept up to date on the Council’s workings.

The site has recently been revamped with a cleaner look and a new logo. To keep things easier to navigate only news headlines will appear on the home page with the more detailed news now available at the Parish News page. It is hoped that everything is laid out so that whatever you need to find is easily navigatable.

If you have any comments or more importantly have any information please contact rogerpyke1@gmail.com

Can you help?

The Parish Council minute books prior to 1920 (we believe they date back to 1887) are missing (despite checking, the Cornwall Records Office appear not to hold them). We wanted to see if any parishioners may know of their whereabouts?  If you have any information as to their whereabouts please contact Alison Barham, South Petherwin Parish Clerk, Pentreve, South Petherwin, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 7JA.

The death of Graham Facts Martin marks the end of a life given over to public service both in the parish of South Petherwin as a Parish Councillor for more than 30 years, Village Hall chairman along with over five decades as the parish’s District Councillor and Launceston Town Councillor for ten years.

Born in 1934 at Bramley, Surrey, he spent most of his life farming at Trethevy, but his passion was politics as a life long Conservative member and supporter.
