Cornwall - Helston

Helston is a town and civil parish in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is situated at the northern end of the Lizard Peninsula approximately 12 miles (19 km) east of Penzance and nine miles (14.5 km) southwest of Falmouth. Helston is the most southerly town in the UK and is around 1.5 miles (2.4 km) further south than Penzance. In 2001, the town celebrated the 800th anniversary of the granting of its Charter, making it the second oldest town in Cornwall after Marazion. The town population is 9,780.
The former tin mining and cattle market town is best known for the annual Furry Dance (known locally as the Flora Dance), said to originate from the medieval period.

The name comes from the Cornish 'hen lis' or 'old court' and 'ton' added later to denote a Saxon manor; the Domesday Book refers to Henliston (which survives as the name of a road in the town). It was granted its charter by King John in 1201. It was here that tin ingots were weighed to determine the duty due to the Duke of Cornwall when a number of stannary towns were authorised by royal decree.

Bishops Quay

Tel: 01326 221297

Featured in Coast, Country Living and Cornwall Life magazines, Bishops Quay is not just a holiday ‘house’, it is an outstanding, unique holiday ‘home’, waiting to welcome you with friendly warmth.

Sailors, photographers, film makers, dedicated coast walkers, golfers, birdwatchers, actors, poets, artists, musicians and writers, have all delighted in discovering the place, along with travellers from far abroad, active families, parties of friends and quieter couples.

Peacefully set, down a private track, away from roads, right on the riverbank, here you can measure the time by the tides. Contemplate the groups of wading wildfowl bustling about on the beach opposite, as they feed and rest, searching out the finest spots for stalking small fish swimming along the channel; when all at once they flock and take off to the sky over the river with wings dipping and lifting as one; they are a magnificent sight. The bright kingfishers darting to and fro from the banks, the egrets pacing the stream, the lapwings, sand pipers, all living so close by it is as though they were the ‘hens in your own back garden’. The calling of the curlews and the gentle lapping of the river against the jetty and harbour at high tide are the background sounds here. An occasional passing boat going down river from Gweek, or carefully coming up the creek, makes a beautiful picture.
