Manaccan

Manaccan village is sited on the peaceful, sheltered eastern side of The Lizard, one of the most photogenic villages in Cornwall with colour washed thatched cottages set at different levels along the winding footpaths of the hillside parish. The village is crowned by the 12th century church, famous for its 200 year old fig tree growing out of the steeple wall. Here a huge palm tree grows amidst yew and beech trees as testament to the balmy climate.

The village post office is an excellent delicatessen and stores, The New Inn public house has fine food and ales on offerand The South Cafe is open for cream teas and suppers.

There are lovely wooded lanes that lead down to meandering Gillan Creek and Helford River with their abundance of bird life and sailing boats and here in the leat of Tregonwell mill back in 1791 titanium, then known as Manaccanite was discovered by the Reverend William Gregor
