Members may be interested in a new book by local author Christian Boulton.

‘Five Million Tides’ is a history of the Helford River from prehistoric times to today and describes ‘one of the most important waterways in Britain’.

Despite being mainland Britain’s most southerly haven, it has not always been a place of good fortune. Once a thriving seat of Celtic Christianity, it would end up more associated with villainous seafarers. Nor could it be always relied upon for sanctuary from storms, as the numerous graves of mariners in its village churchyards attest.

Available from Amazon.
