Bradshaw’s Guide


One of the most nourishing little towns in Cornwall. There are quays affording accommodation for vessels of 300 tons burthen. On the north side of Hayle creek is St. Phillack Church, half buried in sand, which here forms immense hills, in some instances 60 feet high. A mile or two beyond are the remains of an ancient church at St. Gwythian, which had laid buried in the sand for centuries.
