Memorial date set for former Padstow clergyman Barry Kinsmen
A memorial service is to be held for well-known Padstow clergyman Barry Kinsmen, whose body was washed up on Cornwall's north coast last week.
Mr Kinsmen, who was a retired priest, former headmaster and one-time mayor of Padstow, went missing on New Year's Eve. His car was found abandoned near Stepper Point but despite extensive searches his body was not located until January 16. It was recovered by Padstow inshore lifeboat crew at a collapsed cave known as the Butter Hole.
A memorial service for the 72-year-old bard of the Cornish Gorsedd has been arranged for Tuesday, February 26, at 2.30pm in St Petroc's Church, Padstow.
A much-loved member of the community, Mr Kinsmen was a noted local historian and leading light in the Old Cornwall Society who helped set up Padstow Museum and the Padstow Echo.
