I finally recieved my copy of Poldark's Cornwall and The Making of Poldark. Does anyone know if The Cult of Poldark is being sold on dvd?
Thank You Bron!. Yes I want to visit Cornwall, maybe next year!
Welcome James, always good to see new members. If you get chance to visit Cornwall next year, do! Its the most wonderful place. We usually go for our summer holiday but not this year, and im having serious withdrawal symptoms!

A passionate child rolling in the dust with her ugly dog; a girl driving oxen; a woman....Did anything else matter?
Thank You everyone for the warm welcome.Im waiting for the first edition of Demelza to arrive as well as the book with the story,Meeting Demelza. Mrs Gimlett, we who are involved in historical re-enactment do not see our period uniforms and civilian clothing as costumes. It is a hobby,yes, and yet it involves family,friends and work is involved. it is also a bit of an escape back to a less complicated time. We do live with the weather yet its fun!
My uniforms are U.S.Army, Regiment of Riflemen, Infantry and Artillery. and lots of sewing is involved!!! Some dye their own wool and yes sometimes the dye does run! LOL!!!
I want to order Poldarks Cornwall. What are your opinions of this book?
Hello James - and welcome to the Forum!
Hello James and welcome.
Look forward to hearing more from you. I have a mental picture of you dancing a stately eighteenth century measure in full costume!
Hi James great to have you join us and a very warm, belated welcome to the forum, which I know you will find really enjoyable
Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
Its fun being able to dance the dances in jane Austin films.Im going to look at the dance scenes in Poldark.....
Or perhaps i should say Contra dancing. Its right out of Jane Austin. Did Robin and Angharad have to take dance lessons for the series?
Here we call our type of dance Square Dancing,very simular to english country dance.I learned in elementary school.Sadly thry dont teach any form of dance anymore!
Thank You,Bronn! I think thats what i ordered.On amazon it looked like there is a series of books with the scryfa name. Even if i ordered the wrong book,its fun reading the works of local authors!
The car is a 1969 Austen Healey Sprite.The car has spent its life,since new in Northwest Ohio.I will check ebay and Abe books,Thank You!
Hi James a warm welcome to the forum ! What car are you thinking of restoring ?
You'll always find all the Poldark books as well as nearly all of WG's other books on EBay at very reasonable prices....
As for finding a copy of "Meeting Demelza" anywhere these days it's going to be pretty difficult however there's quite a lot of useful information in the thread below....
Hope you enjoy it all !

I learned about this site on a Poldark group on facebook,yesterday, and sighed up here.Ive read the first two books of the series,sadly B&N only stocks the first three from this publisher.
I remember this series as it was very popular here. Ive recently retired from the auto industry.My hobies include historical re-enactment-War of 1812,and period dancing,reading,music,film and i may soon start restoring a british sports car.
Yesterday i also recieved my copy of Making Poldark. Our local library has a copy of the series and it is popular,(sadly the do not have the book series)
I would love to visit Cornwall perhaps next summer?
