The Book of Mawnan (pdf e-book)
  • Description

The Cornish parish of Mawnan as we know it today was built on the foundations of the two manors, Penwarne and Trerose, and is situated a few miles south-west of Falmouth. The old Parish Church of Saint Mawnan on the cliffs looks out over an area of outstanding natural beauty populated by wild flowers, a multitude of birds, marine life, and sandy and rocky coves.

The village has changed greatly over the years. Many old shops and businesses have disappeared; their places now taken by new and thriving activities, while long-established landmarks such as The Red Lion still survey village life as they have always done.

Tourism plays a big part in the prosperity of the locality, helped by the fact that Mawnan Smith boasts more important gardens in its immediate vicinity than any other village in Cornwall. It also stands adjacent to the beauty and amenities of the Helford River.

All is reflected here in this book by the community for the community covering the history of the parish from early days, but concentraing largely upon the twentieth century.
