Lostwithiel lies at the upper tidal reaches of the River Fowey, hidden away by richly wooded hills. A small town, proud of its heritage, independent spirit and genuine friendliness, it is loved and cherished by all who live there.

In The New Book of Lostwithiel the town's story is told from its beginnings as a vital port developed by the Normans and as the centre of the tin industry and the administrative capital of medieval Cornwall.

During the Civil War, the town was occupied, besieges and badly damaged but, thanks to political patronage in the eighteenth-century, Lostwithiel recovered, to be kept going in turn by improved roads, farming, iron mining, the railway and the 'milk factory'.

Lostwithiel is now developing a reputation as the 'antiques centre' of Cornwall. Today Lostwithiel, with its many traditions, institutions, clubs and societies and its strong sense of community, has a character that is all of its own.
