Fowey Harbour Heritage Society

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. Our aim is to encourage you to explore the area and find out more about the places and people that have contributed to its heritage.

Fowey Harbour Heritage Society

Promoting the heritage of the Fowey harbour area

The Society introduces you to the rich and varied history of Fowey harbour and what you can see today by:

  • Organising talks
  • Publishing an annual journal
  • Presenting our annual heritage awards
  • Providing heritage grants to local organisations
  • Promoting guided walks
  • Working with other societies on heritage projects

Postponement of talk 3 September

Because of the ongoing concerns with regards to Covid we regret that we have decided to cancel the talk on Cornish Gigs which was due to take place on 3 September.
A new date will be arranged and all those who had booked tickets for this event will have their tickets transferred to the new date. Alternatively a refund will be provided if requested.
We are sorry to take this action but the safety of all those involved is our prime concern.



The Fowey Harbour Heritage Society now has its own Facebook page where you can keep up to date with news and events
