Things are not always as they seem in Cornwall. the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole is pronounced ' Mowzel', the name apparently taken from a cave known as the Mouse hole which was formerly inhabited by one of Cornwall's many hermits.
Cornwall had more than its fair share of saints in the past, people who gave up their lives to serve others and glorify God. Fishing was always a dangerous occupation and drew people closer to God because deaths at sea were common. Nowadays, the numerous fishing harbours and old fishermens's houses are considered to be full of character and many are indeed prized holiday homes.
