"A great book for the armchair traveller or visitor to Cornwall. It is written as if you are sitting down with the author over a cup of tea or two and listening to tales and history. A delight."

An engaging and informative history of Mevagissey

For over eight hundred years Mevagissey has flourished beside the south Cornish coastline. It has, in its heyday, been a globally significant port, lighting the streets of London in the eighteenth century and feeding the homes of Europe.

It has been battered by freak storms and a cholera outbreak but has continued, unbroken, contributing in no small part to the colonisation of the world by Cornish men and women.

This potted history gives an insight into the history of the village and takes a humorous look behind the scenes into what it is like to actually live and work in Cornwall’s second largest fishing port.  It debunks a few myths and introduces some lively, tall tales, as told through local voices.

A History of Mevagissey is well written and well researched and provides an entertaining and fascinating look into the history of this famous village.
