Plaque unveiled in memory of Poldark actress
1:00pm Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
She entertained millions as the heroine of TV drama series Poldark and now a plaque has been put up in memory of Angharad Rees at the Wendron tourist attraction of the same name.
The actress is best known for her role as Demelza in the 1970s romantic saga, which was set amongst Cornwall's tin mines.
Fast-forward to today and Poldark Mine, a former tin mine rescued from receivers in 2000 by mining heritage enthusiasts, has placed the plaque in its museum following Angharad's death from pancreatic cancer in July last year aged 63.
Its unveiling was carried out by Angharad's son Rhys Cazenove during Poldark Day - a celebration of “all things Poldark”.
The day celebrated the drama series and raised money for the Pancreatic Cancer Appeal through a series of family activities.
It included the chance to meet Val Adams, author of The Passion of Poldark and founder of the Poldark Appreciation Society, who invited Rhys to attend the event.
Visitors were encouraged to wear 18th century costume, joining the members of the society who came dressed for the occasion.
