Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Paul is a parish and village with an interesting history.

Named in honour of St Paul, the patron of its church, in the 13th Century, Paul shows evidence of early human occupation with a large number of archaeological features including barrows, standing stones, enigmatic fogous and the remains of what is believed to be a stone circle at Trevello.

It is recorded that the Spaniards burned Paul in 1595. A small section of the original church remains showing evidence of the fire.

In the church yard wall is a monument to Dorothy (Dolly) Pentreath, who died in 1778 at the age of 102 and who is reputed to be the last person to speak the ancient Cornish language.

The monument is inscribed in English and Cornish and was erected in 1860 by Prince Louis Lucien Bonaparte.

Today the church tower is a prominent feature of the landscape, visible from the sea.
