St Ewe

St Ewe is a tiny and compact traditional cornish village consisting of a few houses, village square, church and  pub. St Ewe is situated in a rural setting, the village  dating back to Norman times. Evidence of earlier settlement is indicated by the presence of a celtic cross (probably 9th century) which once stood near the centre of the village but was destroyed in 1873 by a farmer looking for buried treasure! Only the base of the cross survives. St Ewe Parish Church is of course dedicated to St Ewe, of whom little is known.
The church's tower and spire were added in the 14th century. The church is well worth a visit and features a Norman Font and a 15th century rood screen.  Plenty of free parking in the centre of the village near the entrance to the church.  A few minutes stroll from the church and village centre is the Crown Inn. The Inn is fairly large and has a bar with bar food, an open fire in the bar area and a resident parrot . Modestly priced and good bar food. The Inn also has a restaurant.  St Ewe is about  6 miles from St austell & 3 miles from Mevagissey.
