St Germans  Cornwall


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described St Germans like this:

St Germans.-- market town and par. with ry. sta., Cornwall - par. (containing Hessenford and Tideford), 10,097 ac., pop. 2307; town, on Lynher Creek, 9½ miles NW. of Plymouth; P.O., T.O. Market-day, Friday. This is a very old town, and from the 9th to the 11th century was the seat of a bishop. The Church of St Germans, with tower of 13th century, is very interesting. The town carries on an export trade in coal, and has a stock fair in May, and some fisheries.
