An engaging and informative history of Mevagissey.
For over 800 years, Mevagissey has flourished beside the south Cornish coastline. It has, in its heyday, been a globally significant port, lighting the streets of London in the 18th century and feeding the homes of Europe.
It has been battered by freak storms and a cholera outbreak but has continued unbroken, contributing in no small part to the colonization of the world by Cornish men and women.
This potted history gives an insight into the history of the village and takes a humorous look behind the scenes into what it is like to actually live and work in Cornwall's second largest fishing port. It debunks a few myths and introduces some lively, tall tales, as told through local voices.

Great History with a fantastic narrator
The performance from the narrator, Jack Dundon, brought this piece of history to life. I would recommend this book.
