Photographer's Note

Checking through my archives to remind myself of what was there, I found this shot of Mevagissey.
It was a typical English summer's day, grey sky and the possible threat of rain!

Mevagissey is an old town, and was once the centre of Cornwall's pilchard fishery, it still boasts a working harbour.

The name Mevagissey is derived from the names of two saints, St.Meva and St.Issey.
Records tell us that there was a hamlet here in 1313, but there were local settlements in the Bronze Age.

Thank you for your visit.
