POLGOOTH INN, ST AUSTELL

Cornwall Life - - CAPTURING CORNWALL -

Nes­tled in a ru­ral val­ley be­tween St Austell and Mevagissey, the Polgooth Inn has firm roots on the his­toric map of Corn­wall. The ma­jor­ity of the build­ing you see now wasn’t con­structed un­til the 19th cen­tury. The inn was once used as a pay house for min­ers – a con­tentious is­sue for their wives as the wages seemed to dis­ap­pear on beer be­fore they made it home.
