One of the earliest indications that Newlyn was involved with fishing is in a reference to a payment it made to the Duchy of Cornwall in 1337, its year of formation, when they received annual payments from fishing ports.<br />

Steeped in history, Newlyn has grown up around the fishing industry and, despite the current pressures, remains a strong and proud community, supplying livelihoods to many who are fiercely loyal to their profession.
