Crantock village, Cornwall

Crantock is a village and parish in the Restormel district of mid-Cornwall. Formerly known as Langurroc which translates as - 'The Dwelling of Monks', it dates back to 460 AD when a group of Irish hermits founded an oratory here. The name Crantock is thought to be a corruption of the name of Carantoc, a 6th century Welsh saint. The small village lies to the south of the River Gannel with the river also acting as a natural boundary between the parishes of Newquay and Crantock. The Gannel is tidal and a dangerous place to swim or wade. Ferries operate on a seasonal basis from Fern Pit to Crantock Beach. The village can be reached from the A3075 road via the junction at Trevemper.
