Gunwalloe village, Cornwall

Gunwalloe

Gunwalloe village (Cornish: Sen Gwynnwalo), is situated on the Lizard. The parish is bounded on the north by Carminowe Creek and the parish of Mawgan, on the east by the parishes of Cury and Mullion, and on the south and west by Mullion. The village and church of Gunwalloe are romantically situated amongst the sand dunes and cliffs on the west coast of the Lizard and there are local stories of smuggling, looted wrecks, and buried treasure.
The Primrose sloop of war was lost in 1807, with all her crew except one boy, in Gunwalloe Cove.

The parish name is taken from the Breton saint Winwaloe, whose mother is reputed to have grown a third breast when she had triplets! The village was originally owned by the Penrose family but was eventually sold, mostly to sitting tenants and the National Trust.
