The Zennor Mermaids

These Zennor mermaids are the stars of one of Cornwall's biggest mysteries. Now you can bring the mystery into your home!

Long ago, a beautiful and richly dressed woman occasionally attended services at St.Senara's Church in Zennor, and sometimes at Morvah. The parishioners were enchanted by her beauty and her voice, for her singing was sweeter than all the rest. She appeared infrequently for scores of years, but never seemed to age, and nobody knew whence she came, although they watched her from the summit of Tregarthen Hill. After many years, the mysterious woman became interested in a young man named Mathey Trewella, "the best singer in the parish." One day he followed her home, and disappeared; neither was ever seen again in Zennor Church.
