Across the Tamar

In 2004 we began researching ageing and physical activity. Our first project, which was for the Women's Sports and Fitness Foundation, took place in Cornwall exploring the lives of women over 55. When we travelled to Cornwall, as neophyte researchers, it was an adventure, We Crossed the Tamar. That crossing has been significant for our research and our lives in a way that many of the women we interviewed talked about epiphanies in their lives. We continue to cross these metaphoric boarders and bridges in the hope of learning about others lives and sharing the lessons we have learned. In the following paged we hope to share a little bit more about this project, and our on-going research into physical activity, ageing and mental health.
