Polgooth village, Cornwall

The village of Polgooth lies about two miles southwest of St. Austell in Mid Cornwall.

Situated in an ancient mining area, Polgooth's residents were employed at the nearby mines or a little further afield in the china clay industry around St. Stephen. Polgooth lies about three miles west of the coast with its nearest beaches being Pentewan and Porthpean.

Polgooth is in the parish of St. Mewan, a Celtic Saint.

The village is well placed, just south of the A390 Truro to St. Austell road. Its central location makes the Polgooth area ideal to use as a base to explore the nearby Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan as well as the rest of Cornwall.
