Artist's Description

Mousehole, pronounced “Mowzel”, is located just three miles westward around Mounts Bay from Penzance and is one of the most beautiful coastal villages in Britain. Happily, it has remained largely unspoiled by the developments of the 20th Century and it continues to present the image of the classic Cornish fishing village of bygone days. The village is centred round a nearly circular harbour protected from the force of the sea coming across Mounts Bay by two sturdy breakwaters.
Today there still remains some fishing boats based in the harbour while these are augmented by pleasure craft to make the vista of the harbour peaceful and idyllic.
Just offshore outside the harbour is St Clement’s Isle, a small rocky islet where once an ancient hermit was said to live. A few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave which some people say gives rise to the name of the village of Mousehole. While unlikely, the origin of the name continues to be a topic of much curiosity.
