Falmouth is a
town, civil parish and port on the River Fal on the south coast of
Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It has a total resident
population of 21,635.
Falmouth is the terminus of the A39, which begins some 200 miles
away in Bath, Somerset.
Falmouth is famous for its harbour. Together with Carrick Roads, it
forms the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and the
deepest in Western Europe. It is also famous for being the start or
finish point of various round-the-world record-breaking voyages,
such as those of Sir Francis Chichester and Dame Ellen MacArthur.
Falmouth Docks Police enforce the law in the docks. The name
Falmouth is of English origin, which recent Cornish language
enthusiasts have translated to "Aberfal" based on Welsh precedents.
It is claimed that an earlier Celtic name for the place was
Peny-cwm-cuic, which has been Anglicized to 'Pennycomequick'.
Falmouth was the site where Henry VIII built Pendennis Castle to
defend Carrick Roads, in 1540. The main town was at Penryn. Sir John
Killigrew created the town of Falmouth shortly after 1613.
