The coastal town of Fowey dates back to the 12th century and has thrived as a port, initially trading as a naval town and then the centre of china clay exports. Today the town is busy with trawlers and yachts where tourism is a major source of income, contributing £14m to the local economy. Both vehicle and foot ferry services cross the river to Bodinnick and Polruan. The town has both a primary and secondary school. Fowey has been the inspiration for many authors including Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, Daphne Du Maurier and Kenneth Grahame. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this historic and pretty town has a wealth of amenities to cater for most daily needs.
