    Map of Fowey ��� 1783

    Favorite thing: Fowey's maritime history goes back to the Middle Ages, where it was an important port for warships and galleons. Many of the vessels that sailed from Fowey's shores became involved in historical confrontations such as the Calais Blockade. Other ships were used by historical figures such as Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. Both Captains sailed from Fowey's shores further strengthening its reputation as a significant seafaring town.

    Palms in England

    Favorite thing: Palm trees is not something you would associate England with. Here in Cornwall that is however quiet normal. The warm Gulf Stream that hits the South Coast of England ensures moderate warm weather year round ensuring that some plants are growing here, that one would not find further north.
