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.

Well, all bar the sweeping up and a bit of publicity, my book is done. It is written and published and yet here I sit feeling concerned and deflated. When it launched as a digital version over the weekend I was nervous but began to receive some lovely feedback. As nice as that was there was […]
