Mousehole a picturesque fishing village very close to Penzance. Pronounced Mowzol, has a pretty harbour and small beach. Dylan Thomas (1930) described Mousehole as ' the loveliest village in England', a title that remains true to the present day. An acient village with a long history. Celebrates "Tom Bawcock's Eve" where a monstrous fish pie is baked and consumed by the patrons of the Inn on the quayside. Mousehole, like Penzance, Newlyn, and Paul, was destroyed in the 1595 raid on Mount's Bay by Spaniard Carlos de Amésquita, the only surviving building being the 'Keigwin Arms', a local pub. Outside the Keigwin Arms (now a private residence) is a plaque with the wording "Squire Jenkyn Keigwin was killed here 23rd July 1595 defending this house against the Spaniards"
