Charlestown and Mevagissey

Sunday 9th June

£16.00pp coach only

Charlestown

Located about a mile outside the town of St Austell is Charlestown, an amazingly pristine, unspoiled example of a late Georgian working port. It was constructed between 1791 and 1801 by Charles Rashleigh, entrepreneur and member of the local landowning family, in response to the growth of the growth of the local mining industry. Originally built to export copper and import coal, it was soon being used for the export of China Clay. It is from its creator that the the port gets its name.

Mevagissey

Mevagissey is an attractive old town which was once the centre of Cornwall’s pilchard fishery and which still boasts a working harbour, with a few dozen small fishing boats.

In the narrow streets are many gift shops, craft workshops, galleries, cafés and pubs. There are several hotels and many fish restaurants in Mevagissey and, of course, plenty of fish and chip shops! Many of the latter were once the haunts of Cornish smugglers.
