Fishing-Newlyn.jpg

Christmas lights overlooking Newlyn Harbour.

One of the earliest indications that Newlyn was involved with fishing was 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.

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.
