In the future myself and my family hope to relocate down to Cornwall, we are likely talking quite far into the future possibly 10 years maybe more unless a golden opportunity to do it presents itself beforehand.

Anyway I'm doing some research into how practical the move would be work wise so could anyone let me know where the Guards depots are based throughout Cornwall as ideally we would want to live fairly close to Newquay and I'm not sure there is a depot particularly local to that area.

If you want to live near Newquay then Par is your depot of choice, they work Falmouth, Newquay, Looe and Gunnislake branches and Penzance to Plymouth although I think they may go as far as Exeter as guards I’m not sure as the Drivers only go to Plymouth.

Thank you both thats useful information. I had heard that the Par depot was the likely location but wasn't sure if there were any others through Cornwall.

GWR have guards depots at Plymouth, Par and Penzance

XC have TMs at Plymouth

Never seen either take qualified guards. And not sure what PT&R arrangements are for guards if you're already a GWR guard.
