Fowey


Fowey (pronounced Foy) has a charm as natural as its deep-water habour, its houses daintily huddled above the water, one of the south coast's best sailing areas for yachtsmen, and romantic creeks for landlubbers to explore. It was nationally important seven centuries ago: when London could only muster twenty-five ships for the Siege of Calais in the Hundred Years' War (1337 - 1453, Fowey sent fourty-seven and more than seven hundred men. Given the taste for action, these 'Fowey Gallants' turned pirates and carried on fighting even when the war was declared over.
