PERRANPORTH

Perranporth is only a small resort but is a popular  tourist destination.  

The Cornish name for this resort is Porthpyran which sounds quite similar to the English name which of course is not always the case in Cornwall place names The name comes from yet another Saint , this time being St Piran. It may even be that he was responsible for a church in Perranzabuloe in the seventh century AD. There is a  chapel in Perranporth.
 This popular resort  is approximately 6 miles from Newquay .  
As regards distances it is quite a handy area as a base for exploring the bottom parts of Cornwall too.
The village has shops but it is small.  It holds an inter celtic  event in October each year.
There were  famous Poldark stories written by the author Winston Grahamn  which refer to the   area near Perranporth.
