Manaccan village, Cornwall

Manaccan village lies on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula, just south of the Helford Estuary and inland from Gillan Creek.

The village and parish have been known by various names over the years: Managhan in Cornish, Monachan, Monathon, and even as Minstor and Minster.

Titanium, or manaccanite, as it was then called, was discovered in this parish in 1791 by the Rev. William Gregor. Gold also exists in the black sand which yields manaccanite, but not enough in quantity to pay for working.
