A History of Mevagissey
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.

Here’s a thing. I am not good at punctuation, never was, never have been. Doubt I ever will be. I remember after my first month of English A level, the new teacher took me to one side, and asked what my problem with apostrophes was. I didn’t have a problem. How could I have a problem if […]
This was a short piece of creative writing I had to do. The brief was to place your character in a heaven or hell scenario. Enjoy. Sheila sat at her table, the nylon upholstery of her chair prickled the backs of her thighs and she wondered how soon she could politely retire to bed. Her dress […]
Something has been bothering me recently and has got me thinking about the phrase “help those that help themselves.” I was listening to an article on Radio 4 about the state of the Spanish Banking system. The experts were saying that the Spanish banks were doing less to support their local economy than that of […]
