Eternally grateful for having been spared, shipwrecked Normans washed ashore here are credited with the building of the church in this beautiful spot next to the waters of Gillan Creek. On this same promontory there was once a fortress built in the Civil War which was one of the last Cornish Royalist strongholds. There is still a small boatyard in this pretty waterside hamlet, but little else.
