WEST CORNWALL SMUGGLERS’ PUBS

This superbly illustrated guide features a significant number of authentic pubs from St.Ives to Falmouth patronised over two centuries ago by Cornish “free traders”.
In these wonderful old buildings with their low beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, inglenook fire places and secret hiding places one can sense the desperate days of smuggling’s golden era.
At one time, half of the brandy smuggled into the country came in along the Cornish coast!
Today’s fishing villages and holiday beaches were once the background for conspiracy, bribery, intimidation and murder!
