The legend of King Arthur and the Callington/Kit Hill link comes from the Mabinogion. In there it tells of King Arthur holding his court at Celliwic which is the old name for Callington. The hill top at Celliwic is Kit Hill, which I see out of my front window if I look left - so now you know exactly where I am! I thought the 'overflow' might be the cemetry in Liskeard Road as well as there is no overflow from the St Mary's one. The cemetry now houses Callington Museum in what was the chapel of rest, so, if I can find it, we'll go into the Museum and flag it up. We'll also put an article in the town newsletter to see if anyone remembers it. Do you know which village it was he worked in as each village now has it's own newsletter and I can get it in there. It sounds as if it could be Gunnislake as that's where the 'chimney rock' is - the only local bluff.
