Newlyn Town in Cornwall

Photograph of Newlyn


Newlyn is a town just to the west of Penzance in West Cornwall. This busy fishing port has all but been swallowed up by its larger neighbour in so much that it is hard for the casual visitor to see where Penzance finishes and Newlyn begins. The large harbour, first mentioned in 1435, is sheltered by the land with Gwavas Lake offering respite from the Atlantic storms.
