A favorite Cornish toast at the end of the 18th century was fish, tin and copper, and it was the first of these that brought prosperity to the Mounts Bay ports of Mousehole and Newlyn. Fish, fishing grounds, and markets change, but Newlyn survivesMoreA favorite Cornish toast at the end of the 18th century was fish, tin and copper, and it was the first of these that brought prosperity to the Mounts Bay ports of Mousehole and Newlyn.

Fish, fishing grounds, and markets change, but Newlyn survives at the center of the fishing industry and remains one of England’s most important fishing ports. Fishing in Mousehole has long since ceased, but the port enjoys a thriving tourist industry. From the medieval watermills and market place of Mousehole, to the controversial slum clearance, the story of the two towns is told against a backdrop of national concerns.

These include the Spanish Raid of 1595, the English Civil War, the visits of John Wesley, and the arrival of the railways. This book reminds the reader to look beyond the picture-postcard beauty of these historic Mounts Bay ports and discover the history and culture of a very distinctive locality.
