Newlyn

Probably  the best known fishing village in Cornwall, still a working fishing village having the largest number of fishing boats in Cornwall.  Dating from the fifteenth century the old harbour features boats of all types and descriptions; traditional small hand line boats (mackerell fishing), small crabber boats and even trawlers.  Newlyn has its own museum, the Pilchard Museum, celebrating the days when huge numbers of Pilchards could be caught in the surrounding seas.  Old fishermens cottages lead off from the harbour and there are good eating places and pubs in the village.  Newlyn is associated with the 19th cent  Newlyn School Of Artists and many examples of their work are housed in Penlee Gardens and Museum  in Penzance (entry is free on saturdays). A pleasant walk along the waterfront, about 1 mile, to Penzance town centre and shops.
