Cornish: Lerrin


Not far from Lostwithiel in mid Cornwall is the delightful village of Lerryn. Sitting astride the River Lerryn, a tributary to the River Fowey, there are fantastic walks to be had here.


A large earthwork known as the Giant's Hedge runs from Lerryn to Looe, 'One day when the devil had nothing better to do, he built a hedge from Lerryn to Looe' - as the saying goes. The hedge is actually believed to be a defensive dyke built during the Dark Ages.


The village hosts an annual 'Seagull' race, during which competitors can race any type of watercraft as long as it is propelled by a 'Seagull' outboard motor..!
