Welcome to the Fowey Harbour Heritage Society Website

Fowey harbour, which includes the communities of Fowey, Bodinnick and Polruan, has been a significant international trading port since the medieval period and is still a working port today, exporting china clay.

Talk by Lynn Goold Online Via ZOOM

Saturday 30th January 2021 at 2.30pm

Throughout the centuries Fowey has always attracted a wide range of visitors, some have stayed, some just passed through but all have left their mark in some way. From artists to writers and poets something about Fowey has mostly charmed and delighted them but there are some that have been less than complimentary. Join Lynn in this exploration of Fowey through the eyes of some famous people and be introduced to some you may not know. 

Well known as a popular speaker, Lynn is a trained Blue Badge guide, tourism expert and co-chair of the Fowey Festival.
