St Pol de Leon

Mousehole Lane, Paul, Cornwall  TR19 6UA


The Parish of Paul covers the villages of Paul, Mousehole, parts of Newlyn and the rural area surrounding them.

As well as functioning as a popular Parish Church, the building is a venue for concerts and houses the Memorial to the crew of the Penlee Lifeboat which was lost in 1981. 

Although parts of the building are much older, the Church was largely rebuilt after the burning by Spanish invaders in 1595.
