    Hello everyone,

    I’ve just learned of the passing of Ed Prynn, the Arch-Druid of Cornwall, who famously built a stone circle in his own garden, in St Merryn, not far from Padstow. A well-known figure in Cornwall, I’m sure he’ll be sadly missed. For those of you who do not know about Ed, I’ve included a link from the Cornwall Live news website.

    Never heard of him. Was he affiliated with the OBOD or the TDN? I had never known him to be a member of TDN though.

    So he built his own Stone Circle! Good On Him!

    “In an interview with the BBC a few years ago Ed, revealed how he had his first mystic encounter at the age of nine and became drawn by the power of standing stones. He started to put the stones in his garden in 1982 and the last stone was put in 1999 to celebrate the total eclipse.”

    I am wondering what Mystical Encounter that took place when he was Nine.

    Does Ed Pryn have any connection to the Cornish Gorsedd? I am wondering whether he might do, I know that the Cornish Druids have a Gorsedd just as they do in Wales, so maybe he does

    The circle grows smaller. May he enjoy the fruits of this life in the next.

    Morning David,

    I don’t know if Ed Prynn was ever connected to Gorsedh Kernow – the Cornish gorsedh. However, Gorsedh Kernow – much like Gorsedd Cymru in Wales – is concerned with fostering the arts, the Cornish language, and other cultural activities connected to Cornwall, it is not connected to (neo-)paganism or mystic activities.

    Morning Dowrgi,
    I meant no insult. I have been able to perform a couple of funerals.
    The thoughts that I have were meant in the best traditions of sending off those who have passed.

    Peace and Harmony

    Afternoon Dave,

    I think there’s been a little confusion here, I was replying to David Poole’s question about the gorsedh, not your comment, which was completely valid and inoffensive anyway.

    There are a lot of Daves and Davids around here.

    Okay Dowrgi I think I get your point they are two separate things basically, so maybe he had no connection there at all. On the other hand he might have we don’t know and there is no reason why not Dave I think that Dowrgi was simply making the point that the Cornish Gorsedd is national and hence represents a separate body
